Sul is a 15-year-old student from Cambodia who studies Arabic. He has six brothers and three sisters. Sul enjoys playing games, watching TV, and reading books for his Arabic lessons. He traveled six hours with his brother to reach Children’s Surgical Centre for treatment.
Sul was in a traffic accident in February 2016 that caused an open fracture of his left femur. He is in a wheelchair, and it is painful for him to walk.
Sul requires a debridement and open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) surgery to repair the fracture. The debridement will remove all the dead and infected skin around his open fracture, and ORIF will reposition and set the broken bone. Once his fracture has healed, he will be able to walk without pain.
For $405, Sul will undergo the needed surgery and also receive two weeks of hospital care, five days of post-operative care (including physiotherapy), and six follow-up appointments during the first year after surgery.
“I hope I can walk normally after my surgery and not be in any pain,” shares Sul. “When I am healed, I will go home and return to school.”

Sul received successful fracture treatment.
Sul’s open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) surgery went very well. During the procedure, Sul’s open fracture was debrided and his femur was set into its correct position. He will have a week of physiotherapy after his surgery, as well as a follow-up procedure in one month to ensure optimal healing. The physiotherapists at the clinic will also teach him how to do leg exercises to continue his healing process at home.
Already, Sul has started to walk around easily again after having to live in a wheelchair for months. The wound is healing as expected and he is no longer in pain. “I’m so happy to go back to school again,” Sul said. His brother, who accompanied him to the clinic, is also very thankful and happy to see his brother is doing so much better. Once he’s completely healed, Sul will be able to return to school and live his life normally again.
