Kry Ya is a 26-year-old factory worker with three brothers and two sisters, all are married and live in other homes. Kry Ya’s parents are vegetable sellers. In his free time, Kry Ya enjoys singing, listening to music, playing games, and playing football with friends.
In July, Kry Ya was in a motor vehicle accident that caused paralysis of his left shoulder. Kry Ya has been diagnosed 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. At this time, Kry Ya is unable to lift his left arm preventing him from working.
Kry Ya traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. This is the only center in the country where this treatment is available. On September 5th, Kry Ya will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he will be able to use his hand again. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is raising $709 to fund this procedure.
Kry Ya shared, “I hope I can regain function of my arm as soon as possible.”

Kry Ya underwent nerve surgery and restore his mobility.
Kry Ya had a complex brachial plexus repair surgery with our medical parter CSC. After a week at the hospital, he was able to return home. This surgery is life-sustaining for him; it will allow him to regain the use of his left side so that he can improve his chances to avoid a permanent disability. He is working closely with the physiotherapy team to regain strength, as it may be many months until he sees a complete return to his full function. He is hopeful to have a complete recovery so his family does not have to support him. He would like to find a good job and marry one day, and it has been very hard for him to be so young, yet dependent on others for self-care. Surgeons look forward to seeing him over the next several months to check on his progress.
Kry Ya said: “I am grateful to the CSC staff for trying to fix my arm. My family is so happy that I survived the accident and was able to receive help for my injuries. Now I have hope to work again. Please thank everyone who donated so that I could have surgery and can be more independent.”
