Vibol is an 18-year-old gasoline attendant from Cambodia. He has one younger sister. His father works a motor taxi driver and his mother is a housewife. In his free time, he enjoys meeting his friends to play football or volleyball and listening to music.
A year ago, Vibol was in a motor vehicle crash where he fractured his left tibia. He had surgery at a local government hospital where a plate and screws were placed to help the fracture heal. Now that the fracture site has healed, he has full function of his leg, however it is uncomfortable for him to have hardware in his leg and he needs it removed to limit the risk of infection.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On September 16th, Vibol will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. During the procedure, surgeons will remove the hardware that has caused him discomfort.
Vibol shared that he hopes the hardware will be easy to remove and the wound will heal quickly so he can return to work and do the things he enjoys.
