Fary is an energetic 9-year-old from Cambodia. He lives with his parents and older brother in Kratie province. Fary’s parents earn a living as rubber tree farmers. His favorite subject in school is P.E., and his dream is to be a professional soccer player when he grows up. In his free time, Fary likes playing soccer with his friends in the village.
When Fary was one year old, he accidentally spilled boiling water from the rice pot on his hands. Burn scar contractures have developed, tightening the skin on his hands and fingers. As a result, it is difficult for him to use his hands, making it hard for him to do things like write or play with his friends.
When Fary’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), they traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On May 3rd, Fary will undergo burn contracture release surgery to improve the function in his hands. CSC is requesting $495 to fund this procedure. Fary’s family contributed $100 to his care.
His mom shared: “After surgery, I hope Fary can bend his fingers and feel better when he’s at school.”
