Ya is a 26-year-old potato farmer from Cambodia. He and his wife were married only two months ago. They are now living with Ya’s parents to help them with the work on their farm. Ya likes to play soccer, drive through the countryside on his motorcycle, and cook for his family.
In May 2018, he was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his left forearm. His family brought him to a hospital where he had a plate installed on the bone. His fracture healed well after that, and he regained the use of his arm. However he still feels pain in his arm where the plate is installed.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On August 7th, Ya will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which costs $230. This procedure will remove the problematic plate and allow his arm to fully recover.
Ya said, “I am thankful to CSC for helping me so much, and I am happy that my arm will be free of pain after the surgery.”
