Ratha is a 29-year-old construction worker. He has one brother and one sister, and he lives with his parents. His father also works in construction and his mother is a rice farmer. In his free time, Ratha enjoys playing football, singing songs, and spending time with friends.
Earlier this month, Ratha was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a wound to his right ankle. He did not go to a hospital after the accident; instead he went home and took medicine from a local pharmacy. His ankle became infected, and now Ratha experiences pain, wound discharge, and he cannot walk.
When Ratha learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled there seeking treatment. On May 21st, surgeons at CSC will perform a debridement procedure to remove damaged and infected tissue from the wound. Now, Ratha needs help to fund this $273 procedure.
Ratha shared, “I am happy that I can receive an operation here. I hope the wound will heal quickly and I can return to work.”
