Savorn is a 21-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He lives with his parents and two siblings. In his free time, Savorn likes to listen to music on his phone and watch Khmer boxing on TV.
In August 2020, Savorn was in a motor vehicle accident which caused a fracture of his left femur. After the accident, he went to a local Khmer healer, but his leg did not heal. As a result of the accident, Savorn cannot work or walk without assistance and he says that he feels poorly and is depressed. It is difficult for him to walk, and he is in chronic pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help Savorn. Savorn is currently in traction to align his fracture. On March 2nd, Savorn will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will stabilize his fracture for permanent healing and will help him walk again.
Savorn hopes after surgery, his left femur will be fixed, he will have no pain, and that can return to work to support his family.
