Sokhim is a man from Cambodia. He has has six brothers. He enjoys listening to classical music, going for walks, reading books, and watching TV.

A year ago, Sokhim was burned by gasoline on his hand and had to have his left thumb amputated. He has difficulty using his hand and wants to gain better function in his hand.

Sokhim needs to undergo a pollicization operation, which is a procedure that will create a thumb from an existing finger. This will help him use his hand more easily. Surgery is scheduled for November 12 and will cost $448.

He says, “I hope I can return to work after the operation. I look forward to using my new thumb.”
