Rathanak is a 34-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He and his wife have been married for four years, and have a three-year-old son. His wife sells meals and fruit at a nearby factory. When he is not working he likes to play volleyball or take his son out on walks.
In 2017, Rathanak was in a motor vehicle accident that caused fractures to his tibia and forearm. He went to a local hospital where doctors installed a nail to fix his fractures. The bone healed well over time, but he still feels pain in his leg where the nail is installed.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On August 6th, Rathanak will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will remove the nail, relieving his pain and allowing his bones to heal completely.
Rathanak shared, “I thought it would be difficult or expensive to get the nail out of my leg, but I am glad that Children’s Surgical Centre can help me to heal.”
