Dalin is a 22-year-old farmer. She is married and has one young son who just started preschool. She loves to play with him in her free time. Her husband is also a farmer. They grow rice during the rainy season as well as vegetables to sell at local markets.
In January 2020, Dalin was involved in a traffic accident resulting in broken bones in her left leg. The injury did not heal properly, causing persistent swelling, pain and limited mobility. This makes it difficult for her to walk or put any weight on her left ankle.
When Dalin learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On September 13th, surgeons at CSC will perform a joint arthrodesis procedure to fuse her left ankle joint and to help her walk again. Now, Dalin needs help to fund this $600 life-changing procedure.
Dalin said, “I hope this surgery stops my pain so that I can walk easily and work for my family again.”
