Saratt is a 29-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He and his wife have been married for eight years and they have two children, one son and one daughter. His daughter just started first grade and his wife is a factory worker. Saratt likes to take his family to eat at a restaurant a least once a week.
In December 2018, Saratt was in a motor accident in which he suffered a fractured left ankle. His wife took him to a local public hospital where they fixed an external device and performed a skin graft. However, after returning home, his ankle became infected. He experiences pain, swelling, and pus discharge that makes it difficult to walk.
When Saratt learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On July 6th, surgeons at CSC will perform a debridement procedure to get rid of the infection and correct the fracture with a fixation device. Now, Saratt needs help to fund this $273 procedure.
Saratt shared, “My ankle has had pain for so long now, I just hope that I can walk normally and enjoy playing with my children again.”
