Rina, a 14-year-old girl from Cambodia, fractured her spine, and broke her tibia and fibula about a week ago, when she fell from a tree she was playing in “that was about twenty feet high,” describes our medical partner.
“Her left leg and left side of her bottom took the brunt of the fall, leaving her with a broken tibia and fibula, and a compression fracture of the first vertebrae of her lumbar spine.” As a result, Rina “can’t do anything but lie in bed without having horrible pain and is experiencing numbness in her left foot.”
“Rina is in the eighth grade at school and has two younger sisters,” her doctors continue. “She loves to read and her favorite class is Biology.”
For $405 we can provide Rina with treatment which will significantly reduce her pain and will soon allow her to walk again. Let’s help Rina get back on her feet and back to school!
