Dalis is a 5-year-old from Cambodia. She lives with her parents and her younger sister. Her mother is a factory worker and her father is farmer. She has not started formal school lessons yet, but she already loves to paint and play sports. In her free time, she likes playing with her sister, painting, and watching TV.
Since she was born, Dalis has had developmental dysplasia of her hip. This has caused her left leg to be shorter than her right, and she cannot walk easily.
When Dalis’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On September 8th, surgeons at CSC will perform an open reduction procedure to relocate her hip to its proper position, allowing her hip to develop normally. Now, Dalis’s family needs help to fund this $518 procedure.
Dalis’s mother said, “I am so glad we got a referral to come to this hospital. I hope that my daughter’s hip will be fixed well, so she can play with the other children.”
