Leang Hor is a 28-year-old factory worker. She’s married and her husband also works in a factory. The couple has a nine-year-old son in first grade and an 11-year-old daughter in third grade. In her free time, she enjoys watching movies and cooking for her children. Their family lives with Leang Hor’s parents so that they can send their children to school.
While she was in Thailand looking for work, Leang Hor was in a pickup truck accident with 14 other people. Tragically, all of the occupants died except Leang Hor. She woke up in a Thai hospital with a fractured right humerus. Doctors there applied an external fixation to heal her fracture, but she has an open wound which has since become infected. She feels ill, her hand is very swollen, and she is unable to move her fingers.
When Leang Hor learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled there seeking treatment. On December 10th, surgeons at CSC will perform a wound debridement procedure to remove the infected tissue from her arm. She hopes after the debridement, her right forearm will heal and she will no longer have pain or infection. Now, Leang Hor needs help raising $273 to fund her procedure and care.
Leang Hor shared, “I want to heal soon so I can go back to work to support our family and keep my children in school.”
