Bunthoeun is an unemployed 34-year-old father of two from Cambodia. He lives with his parents, wife, and two daughers aged two years and ten years in Takéo Province. His wife sells snacks at a nearby high school, and his parents watch the children when they are home. Before the accident, Bunthoeun worked as a sales assistant at a motorbike shop. He also enjoys raising chickens around the house, a favorite hobby. In October 2023, Bunthoeun was in a motorbike accident and suffered right shoulder trauma. Following the accident, he received medical care at a hospital in Phnom Pen, but is presently unable to use his right arm. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his right side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. He experiences pain and is unable to lift his hand or shoulder, and he cannot work. Bunthoeun traveled to Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre to receive treatment. This is the only center in the whole country where this treatment is available. On June 18th, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he hopes to use his arm again. Bunthoeun is able to contribute $100 towards his medical care, but needs help raising the remaining $609 for the procedure. Bunthoeun says: "After recovery, I hope I can use my arm again and find a job to help support my family."
