Sovantha is a 36-year-old mechanic from Cambodia. He’s been married for 16 years and together they have one son and two daughters, all in school. Sovantha’s wife works in a factory. When he is not fixing motors, Sovantha enjoys playing on his phone, listening to music, watching TV, washing clothes, and cooking. He also likes to spend time with his children at home.
In May 2020, Sovantha fell 3 meters causing a severe fracture of his left wrist. After the accident he had a pin surgically placed in his wrist to heal the fracture. The bone has healed and the hardware needs to be removed so that he has full functionality and no more risk of infection.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On November 18th, Sovantha will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. The pins will be surgically removed to prevent future complications such as pain and infection.
Sovantha said, “I hope after the pin is removed my left wrist will feel great and there will be no infection.”
