Mab is a 34-year-old electrician. He has two children, with his oldest son is seven years old and his newborn daughter at two months old. In Mab’s free time, he enjoys playing volleyball with his friends.
Last December, Mab was in a motorcycle accident that caused a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is the nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in a loss of function and sensation. After the accident, Mab’s family took him to a local hospital for treatment; however, his left arm is still immobile, and he has shoulder pain. The doctors referred him to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for review, where they determined his shoulder is partially dislocated, and he has no elbow or wrist flexion.
CSC is the only treatment center in the country that can help Mab receive the treatment he needs. On April 5th, he will undergo brachial plexus repair surgery that will allow him to use his hand again. CSC is requesting $696 for the cost of this surgery. Mab was able to gather $100 to contribute to his care, as well.
Mab says, “I hope my arm will regain strength, and I can return to work.”

Mab underwent surgery so he can regain the use of his hand.
Mab underwent a successful complex brachial plexus repair surgery. He is recovering well and returned home to continue his healing. Mab will work closely with our medical partner CSC’s physiotherapy team over the next few months to regain his strength. It often takes time for the nerves to regenerate, but Mab is hopeful to make a full recovery soon. Because of this procedure, Mab will be able to use his left arm and hand again to return to his work as an electrician. It has been difficult for his family without Mab’s help, and they are happy he is on the road to recovery.
Mab’s wife shared, “After his accident, Mab felt very bad that he could not support our family. It has been hard on our small family with the pandemic - now we have hope again. Thank you to everyone who helped to pay for his surgery and to the hospital staff who treated him so well.”
