Oudong is a 13-year-old boy from Cambodia, who is currently in 9th grade. He has two sisters and enjoys watching TV, reading books, and researching his school lessons. He traveled four hours with his mom to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), after learning about the Centre from his uncle who had surgery in there in the past.
Oudong dislocated his elbow when he fell from a tree at the end of June 2016. He is in pain and can’t bend or use his left arm. The only treatment he has received for his injuries is Khmer traditional medicine at home.
For $392, surgeons at CSC will surgically stabilize the joint using pins in his left elbow. After surgery, he will be able to use his arm again without pain.
