Chantha is 31-years-old, and married with one son and one daughter. She works selling vegetables at the market and enjoys staying at home and looking after her children.
Chantha fell down stairs on March 31, 2016 and fractured her left forearm. She is in pain and can’t use her left arm. She received Khmer traditional medicine treatment for three months, but her fracture has not healed.
She traveled three hours with her brother to reach Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) for treatment. For $405, surgeons at CSC will perform an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) procedure to realign the fractured bones in her forearm. After the surgery, she will regain the ability to move her arm.
“When I am better, I will go home and continue to work at my business,” shares Chantha.
