Him is a 49-year-old car washer from Cambodia. He lives in Kampong Cham with his wife and two sons, who are two and five years old. He enjoys listening to Cambodian music from the 50s and 60s in his free time.
In April 2022, Him was riding his motorbike when he crashed into a tuk-tuk and fractured his right tibia. At that time, he sought treatment from a traditional healer, but the fracture wasn’t healing, so he went to a clinic two weeks later. Him underwent surgery, but he is still unable to walk without crutches. He has since visited another nearby clinic, but since he could not afford to pay for any treatment, they were unable to assist him. Him is experiencing chronic pain and is unable to walk or work.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On May 23, Him will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $483. This procedure will help him improve his mobility and decrease his pain.
He shared: “After surgery, I hope I can walk again and help support my family.”
