Kea is a three-year-old child from Cambodia. Her parents are both factory workers, and Kea is their only child. She has not started school yet, but she enjoys drawing pictures and listening to stories. She goes with her dad to play outside everyday.
In July of 2018, she suffered a burn on her right hand from hot water. Her parents took her to a local hospital where the doctors were only able to clean and dress the wound. Soon her fingers became contracted and she could no longer use her hand normally.
When Kea’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), they traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On July 9th, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to release the tension in her hand and allow her to move her fingers well again. Now, she needs help to fund this $477 procedure.
Kea’s mother shared, “She has had problems playing with other children since she got this burn, so I hope after the surgery she can have a good time with her friends.”
