Masy is a 2-year-old baby boy from Cambodia. Masy has one younger brother. His father works for an NGO and his mother has a small business in town. Masy enjoys watching cartoons, playing with toys with his brother, and spending time outside with his parents on the weekend.
In December 2019, Masy accidentally touched a very hot rice cooker and burned his right hand. Scar tissue contracture from the burn has developed. The tightened skin at the burn site limits his hand’s mobility and now he cannot grasp objects.
When Masy’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On October 2nd, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him regain use of his hand. Now, he needs help to fund this $477 procedure.
Masy’s mom said, “I hope his hand will be normal after surgery and my son won’t feel any pain.”
