Heng is a 65-year-old farmer from Cambodia. She is married and has four daughters and three sons. In her free time, Heng enjoys cooking and looking after her granddaughter.
In April 2014, Heng fell, causing pain in her left hip. Over time, her symptoms left her unable to walk and consequently unable to work. After hearing about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), Heng decided to seek treatment.
On March 21, surgeons will perform a hemiarthroplasty procedure on Heng, replacing one half of her hip joint with a prosthetic, while leaving the other half intact. CSC is asking for $450 to cover the cost of Hong’s treatment.
After surgery, Heng will be able to walk easily again!
