Sophy is a 38-year-old construction worker who lives with his wife and two children. His wife is a farmer, growing rice and vegetables which feed the family, and which she also sells at the local market. When Sophy isn’t working, he enjoys playing football, catching up on current events, and taking his children to the local market.
In November 2021, Sophy fractured his right tibia in a motor vehicle collision when he was on his way home from work. He went to a local clinic, where doctors placed hardware in his leg to stabilize the bone and to heal the fracture.
While he has good function of his leg and has been able to return to work, Sophy has a nagging ache where the hardware remains, and doctors have told him that he needs to have the fracture hardware removed.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On October 12th, Sophy will undergo a hardware removal procedure at Kien Khleang Rehabilitation Centre, which will cost $304. This procedure will remove the old hardware, enabling Sophy to continue his rehabilitation while he works full time. Sophy and his family need your support to cover the cost of the surgery.
Sophy said: “After surgery, I hope my right leg will be healed completely with no hardware, and I will no longer worry about it.”
