Phou is a 13-month-old baby boy who has two brothers and one sister. He likes to stay at home with his mother.
When he was five months old, Phou was burned by a hot rice pot. The injury led to burn contractures on two fingers of his left hand. It became difficult for Phou to hold objects, and he was in pain.
When Phou’s mother learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), the family traveled for four hours to seek treatment. On December 14, surgeons at CSC performed a burn contracture release procedure and skin graft to allow Phou to use his hand properly again. CSC is requesting $194 to fund this procedure.
