Meet Leap, a 20-year-old Cambodian man. He has a lot of siblings (four sisters and two brothers) and loves listening to pop songs, playing soccer, and watching boxing movies on TV.
Leap is a construction worker. In February of this year, Leap was cutting a tree with a saw and accidentally cut his right hand. Leap went to a clinic in Phnom Penh, where doctors sutured his wound.
Unfortunately, Leap has now developed infections in the index and middle fingers of his right hand. The fingers are swollen, and some of the bone is exposed, causing him pain and making it difficult for him to use the hand.
To correct these issues, Leap needs to undergo an osteotomy and fusion to shorten his index finger. He also needs to receive an open reduction internal fixation procedure on his middle finger, meaning that doctors will surgically straighten the finger and fix it in place with a screw, rod, or other stabilizing object.
For $411, we can fund these crucial surgeries, as well as the lab tests, physical therapy, and fourteen-day hospital stay Leap will need.
Let’s help this young man return to work!
