Loeum is a 44-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has four sons, and her favorite activities include growing vegetables, feeding the farm animals, and taking care of her family.
In January 2020, Loeum was in a motorcycle accident and fractured her left knee. She is unable to walk without support, and cannot stand for long periods of time without pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On February 26th, Loeum will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This operation will help Loeum’s knee injury to heal and allow her to walk independently again.
“I hope that after my surgery, I will feel much better and I will be able to walk and stand like before without any pain and can return to work,” she shared.
