Mech is a 15-year-old farmer from Cambodia. He lives at home on his family’s rice farm with his parents and younger sister. He enjoys Cambodian beef soup and playing volleyball with his friends.
Last September, Mech was helping one of his uncle’s at a construction site when he got an electric burn on his hand and wrist. His uncle rushed him to the local hospital and they suggested he come to Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) for treatment. Mech is still in pain and unable to use his hand.
When Mech learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On January 9th, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to relive his pain and help him use his hand again. Now, he needs help to fund this $495 procedure.
Mech shared, “I hope after the operation my hand and wrist can heal so I can work and play volleyball again.”
