Sokhorm is a 36-year-old farmer who lives with his wife, two sons, and one daughter in Cambodia. He enjoys watching TV, working in the field, and listening to radio news.
In April of 2014, Sokhorm was in a car accident that caused an open fracture of his left femur and knee stiffness. His wound and fracture have healed, but the knee stiffness remains. He can’t bend his left leg because the muscle is scarred and contracted.
Sokhorm traveled three hours with his wife to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment.
For $425, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricep release operation on his left thigh. Post-surgery, Sokhorm will be able to bend his leg easily again. He will not have any difficulty walking.
