Oun is a 56-year-old Khmer cake seller from Cambodia. Oun has been married for 31 years and she has three daughters and one granddaughter. Oun’s husband is a hard-working farmer.
Three months ago Oun was in an accident caused by a dog running across the road as she was driving her moto. The accident caused a left side distal humerus fracture. First, she went to a Khmer traditional healer for treatment but after one week she saw no improvement. She still experiences swelling, pain with movement, and is unable to flex her left arm. Her family encouraged her to come to Watsi’s Medical Partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC).
Fortunately, surgeons at CSC can help. On September 7th, Oun will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will allow her to use her left arm again.
Oun says, “I hope after surgery my arm will heal and I will not feel any pain.”
