Pov is a caring mother from Cambodia. She has one daughter, who is in second grade. Some of her favorite ways to spend her time are cooking, listening to the news on the radio, and watching videos on Facebook.
Seven years ago, Pov was in a traffic accident in Thailand. Doctors at a nearby hospital performed an open reduction internal fixation procedure on her left tibia in an attempt to stabilize and heal her bone. However, she still experiences pain. A recent X-ray scan showed that Pov has a left femoral neck fracture, which is a hip fracture of the thigh bone.
Fortunately, Pov traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 11th, she will undergo a hip hemiarthroplasty. During this procedure, surgeons will replace the head of the damaged femur to stabilize the bone and restore mobility. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $544 to fund this procedure. This covers supplies, treatment, and inpatient care.
Pov says, “I hope I can walk properly after surgery and am free of pain.”

Pov underwent hip repair surgery so she can walk easily and free of pain.
Surgeons were able to repair Pov’s hip joint with a surgical procedure. She remained in the hospital for a few days and spent time with the physiotherapist to learn exercises to strengthen her muscles when her incision has healed. When her fracture has fully healed, she will no longer be in pain and will be able to return to her active life of caring for her family.
Pov said, “I am relieved my pain will go away and I can walk without help from others. It has been hard on my family because I could not walk and was in pain. Now we can return to normal life soon. Thank you to the hospital staff and strangers who helped me to have a good outcome.”
