Chantha is a 4th grade student from Cambodia. She is the youngest of four siblings, and enjoys playing with her toys, watching television, and going for walks around the village with the family.
When she was two years old, Chantha accidentally came into contact with an open flame and burned three of her fingers on her left hand. The burn has since healed, but the skin has tightened around the fingers, making it difficult for her to flex her hand.
When Chantha learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On September 11th, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to release the skin around her fingers and allow her to move her fingers and hand without difficulty. Now, she needs help to fund this $448 procedure.
“I hope that my daughter will be able to move her hand normally and her hand will look better than before.” -Chantha’s Mother
