Narak is a 19-year-old farmer who lives with his parents and has an eight-year-old sister who is in grade two. He has finished grade 10 in school. The family grows rainy day rice and vegetables that they sell at the local market.
Narak helps his parents on the farm and is studying Japanese because he wants to work in Japan one day. In his free time, he enjoys singing songs, listening to music, playing football, and swimming.
In March 2022, he was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture in his left femur. He was treated at a government hospital with a fracture repair and external fixation frame but did not follow up after two months because of his inability to pay. He feels poorly, and has chronic discharge and redness at the surgical site. It is difficult for him to walk and he is in chronic pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On October 5th, Narak will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $483. This procedure will rid him of his chronic infection and help him walk again.
Narak said: “after surgery, I hope my left leg will be fixed, no pain, no infection, and I can go back home soon.”

Narak underwent surgery to repair a fracture in his left leg.
Narak had a successful surgery to repair his non-union fracture, and now has an external frame to keep fractured bones stabilized and in alignment. This 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 frame. With physiotherapy, Narak should regain the strength he lost in his leg over the past seven months. When it is removed, Narak will be able to walk unaided and help his family by finding work.
Narak’s mother said: “We are grateful to the surgeons who helped my son and to the strangers who paid for his care. I was afraid Narak would never be the same after his accident, but he is better and he looks forward to walking again.
Thank you to the people that made it possible for him to have such good care so he can have a good life.”
