Channy is married and has two daughters ages 10 and 8. Channy’s husband is a rice farmer and she enjoys cooking for her family and playing with her children.
Two years ago Channy was in a motor vehicle accident that caused an open fracture of her left foot. After the accident she went to a government hospital for hardware fixation and treatment. Because of her severe injury, she stayed for two months before returning home. Afterwards, she could not afford to followup care at the hospital. She is still in pain and her relatives told her about our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre.
Channy arrived to the hospital with pain, an infection at the hardware site, and walking using crutches. Surgeons at CSC can help and plan to remove the external fixation and perform an osteotomy surgery. With this care, her ankle will finally heal and she will be able to walk again without pain.
Channy says, “I am thankful that I can finally be better and be able to walk again.”
