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.”

Nak underwent surgery on his leg to relieve his pain.
Nak visited our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre for treatment of his infected leg. He had been feeling very down, could no longer walk, or help his wife around their house. He had successful surgery to fix his leg and returned home after several days of observation at the hospital. He will work with the physiotherapy team to maintain strength while he recovers from surgery. After a fully recovery, he looks forward to returning to his daily activities.
Nak’s wife said: “I want to thank the doctors who fixed Nak’s leg so that he can be more independent around the house and not limited to a wheelchair. He already feels better with the infection gone and can start to exercise again. Thank you to the staff at the hospital for all the help, and to everyone who helped to pay for his care. Our family is very grateful.”
