Srey Mom is a 29-year-old garment worker who lives with her husband and daughter in Cambodia. When she is not at work, she cares for her young daughter and cooks for her family.
On December 19, 2016, Srey Mom was involved in a motorbike accident, resulting in a fractured right tibia (leg bone). She went to a clinic for X-rays. Doctors recommended surgery, but she did not have enough money for treatment. She then went to a Khmer traditional healer, but her symptoms did not improve. Srey Mom cannot walk by herself, and she has been unable to work since the accident.
Srey Mom’s grandmother learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), from a tuk-tuk driver. Srey Mom and her grandmother traveled for four hours to reach CSC for evaluation and treatment.
On March 31, surgeons at CSC will perform an ORIF—open reduction and internal fixation—to heal Srey Mom’s fracture and allow her to walk easily again. Srey Mom needs help raising $411 to pay for the surgery, two weeks of hospital care, X-rays, and physical therapy.
Let’s help fund surgery for Srey Mom!
