Bora is a 29-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has been married for two years and has a baby boy. Bora’s wife is also a farmer. When he is not working Bora enjoys playing volleyball, football, listening to classical music, and watching concert programs on TV while he does housework.
In 2014, Bora was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a closed fracture of his left femur. He traveled to a hospital in Thailand for treatment and a nail was put in his femur. Now the fracture is healed and the nail must be removed so that he does have not future infections and can fully use his leg.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On November 19th, Bora will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. The procedure will remove the hardware to prevent future complications.
Bora said, “I hope after the nail is removed I will feel no pain and the wound will heal soon so I can return to work.”
