Sorma is a one-year-old baby girl from Cambodia and the only child in her family. Her mother is a factory worker and her father is a construction worker. Sorma enjoys playing with her mother, and eating and sleeping.
In March 2020, Sorma was accidentally burned by fire. Her face and right arm were badly damaged. She received medical care and skin grafts at another hospital. Now her family has come to Watsi’s medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) for help with the scar contractures on Sorma’s eyes, lip, nose, right elbow, and right wrist. Particularly, the scar contracture on her right arm and she cannot bend her right arm now.
When Sorma’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for 90 minutes seeking treatment. On November 18th, surgeons at CSC will perform an elbow contracture release and local flap surgery to help her be able to bend her right arm. Now, she needs help to fund this $787 procedure.
Sorma’s mother said, “I hope she will be able to use her arm to hold objects and feel more confident.”
