Tey is a 15-year-old from Cambodia and the middle child in his family, with an older brother and a younger sister. His parents are rice farmers. Tey enjoys school, especially P.E. class, and dreams of being a professional soccer player one day!
In March, Tey was riding on the back of his family’s motorbike when they had to swerve to avoid a large animal in the road. The motorbike fell on its side and caused Tey to fracture his left wrist. For the last two weeks, he has been treated by a traditional Cambodian healer. Tey’s family brought him to our medical partner’s care center for review. On March 29th, he will undergo a fracture repair procedure that will allow him to move his hand and arm easily again. Tey is currently in pain and has limited use of his hand. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), requests $485 to fund Tey’s surgery. His family contributed $100 to his care.
Tey shared: “I hope surgery can help fix my hand, and I can do P.E. at school.”
