This is Ny, a 20-year-old woman from Cambodia!! “Ny makes rice with pork, chicken, and noodles that she sells in a stall in the market,” our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), tells us. Ny also likes to watch Khmer music shows on television.

When Ny was born, she had a squint in her left eye. “She is very sad that everybody makes fun of her and calls her ‘cross eye,’” CSC explains.

For only $290, we can provide Ny with treatment to correct her left eye and enable her to see clearly. “She wants to feel confident,” Children’s Surgical Centre says. “and not be shy so customers will come and buy food from her.”

Samrach

Samrach is a 27-year-old clothing factory worker. He's is married with two small children. His daughter is six years old and just starting the first grade, and his son is nine months old. His wife is also a factory worker in their province. He likes to play with his children and listen to music. Ten months ago, on his way home from the factory, Samrach was in a motorcycle crash. He suffered fractures of the femur, clavicle, forearm, and multiple other injuries. He lost his left leg below the knee due to the trauma injury, and spent three months in a provincial hospital. A local taxi driver told him about the specialty care at our medical partner Children's Surgical Center (CSC). Doctors have diagnosed him with a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. He cannot lift his left shoulder, bend his elbow, or use his hand. He feels unwell and shared that he often feels very depressed that he cannot work or support his family. Samrach traveled to our medical partner's care center to receive treatment. On January 6th, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he hopes to regain the use of his arm so he can find work in the factory again. Our medical partner is requesting $696 to fund this life-changing procedure. Samrach said: "I hope this surgery will work for me, and I can start working again to have money to feed my children and make sure they go to school."
