Nith is a 22-year-old market worker from Cambodia. His parents are farmers and he has three brothers. In his free time he enjoys exercising, playing soccer with his brothers, and listening to music.
In June 2020, Nith was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his right femur. His family took him to a hospital in Vietnam for treatment, where doctors installed a plate on the bone. However, the fracture became infected and did not heal properly. The infection has caused fevers and constant pain, and Nith cannot walk without support.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On August 6th, Nith will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will clear out the infection and allow the fracture to heal completely. Nith will be able to walk easily again.
Nith shared, “I am happy that I can get this surgery and that my family will not have to spend so much money to help me. I will be playing soccer with my friends again soon.”
