Mai is a 52-year-old woman who is married to a vegetable farmer. The couple has two sons and one daughter, who are all attending school. Mai enjoys watching TV, cooking for her family, and taking care of her children.
On March 23rd, Mai slipped and fell, dislocating her right elbow. She sought treatment at a Khmer traditional healer but her condition did not improve. She is still in pain and her elbow is stiff, which makes it difficult to care for her family or do other routine activities.
Another hospital referred Mai to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On June 3rd, surgeons are scheduled to perform a reduction of her elbow to allow her to be free of pain and use her right arm again. Mai and her husband were able to contribute $100 for her care. They need help raising $485.
Mai said, “After surgery, when my right elbow gets fixed - no more pain, no infection, and I’ll work for my family again.”
