Matt is a 36-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He and his wife have been married for 10 years and have four children. Two of their children are in elementary school. His wife is also a farmer. In his free time, he likes taking care of his cows, playing games with his children, watching TV, and doing work around their home.
In March 2020, Matt was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his left arm. He initially sought treatment from a traditional Khmer healer, but the condition of his arm has worsened over time. He cannot use his left arm at all, and still experiences pain whenever he tries to move it.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On August 12th, Matt will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will heal his fracture and allow him to regain use of his arm.
Matt shared, “I look forward to having a strong arm, so I can do my work and hold my kids again.”
