Kamsort is a 28-year-old vegetable farmer, living with his wife and their two-year-old son. Kamsort’s wife is a garment worker. In his free time, Kamsort enjoys listening to music and playing with his son.
In January 2021, Kamsort was involved in a traffic accident that caused an open fracture of his right tibia. After the accident, his family took him to a hospital where he had surgery. Six months later he had the hardware from the surgery removed. But Kamsort remains in pain, he has swelling around his right ankle, and his fracture has not healed properly, making it difficult for him to walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On June 2nd, Kamsort will undergo a fracture repair procedure at Kien Khleang Rehabilitation Centre. Children’s Surgical Centre is requesting $483 to fund this procedure, which will enable Kamsort to walk without pain.
Kamsort says: “I hope my leg will finally be healed after this surgery and I can walk again.”

Kamsort underwent leg surgery so he can walk without pain.
Kamsort had successful surgery to repair his tibia, with an external fixation device to keep his fractured bones stabilized and in alignment. The surgery will ensure the bones remain in an optimal position during the healing process. He received antibiotics for a week and spent time with the physiotherapy team to learn how to walk and care for his surgical site and the device. When it is removed, Kamsort will be able to walk unaided and able to return to work on his farm.
Kamsort said: “I am relieved my leg will finally heal and I can grow vegetables without help from others. It has been hard on my wife because I could not walk, and now we have hope that we can return to our normal life soon. Thank you to the hospital staff and donors who helped me to have a good outcome.”
