Nak is married and has three adult sons. His wife works in a factory, making clothes. In 1985, he was injured in a landmine explosion; both of his lower legs were amputated and he lost most of the fingers on his left hand.
Nak has done well with his disability until recently, when he started having pain in his left leg. He is unable to walk, feels poorly, and is in pain. A local hospital sent him to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, for diagnosis and treatment.
Fortunately, surgeons at Children’s Surgical Centre were able to help. On April 20th, Nak will undergo debridement of the wound and a stump revision. Our medical partner requested $391 to fund his procedure and care.
Once the surgery and recovery are completed, Nak will be able to resume his normal activities at home. He shared, “I hope after surgery, I can walk again and have no more infections.”
