Meet Soek, a 67-year-old field worker from Cambodia. Soek is the mother of one and the grandmother of four. She loves coming out of the field and sitting next to a radio, listening to the news an old Khmer songs.
About a month ago, Soek fell down some stairs and fractured her left hip. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, shares that Soek’s injury “makes it extremely difficult for her to walk and sit down. Now Soek must lie down to rest and cannot hear the radio from her bed.” Because Soek cannot afford a proper hip replacement, “she and her sister made an arduous three hour journey from their province seeking care.”
For $430 we can fund Soek’s hip replacement surgery. The procedure will allow Soek to walk and sit without pain. Let’s help Soek get out of bed and back to listening to the radio she loves!
