Srorn, a 53-year-old farmer from Cambodia, was in a moto accident on May 30, 2016. His accident left him with a chronic wound on his lower right leg. The wound is open and infected, causing him pain and difficulty walking.
Srorn is married with two sons and three daughters. He enjoys helping his wife with housework. In order to seek treatment for his leg, Srorn traveled three hours with his wife to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC).
For $392, Srorn will undergo a procedure to mend his leg wound. Surgeons at CSC will perform an excision and flap surgery, during which they will remove the dead and infected tissue in Srorn’s leg and utilize a skin graft to repair the site.
Once Srorn’s wound heals he will be able to walk easily again, allowing him to tend his farm and help his wife around the house.
