Sainy is a six-year-old boy from Cambodia, currently in first grade. He has one brother, and enjoys staying at home and working on his writing homework and playing with neighboring children.

Sainy’s left patella (kneecap) dislocated when he was three years old as result of a poorly administered thigh injection. It is difficult for him to walk and he experiences pain when walking long distances.

After traveling for three hours with his mom to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he will receive the treatment he needs to walk comfortably again.

Surgeons at CSC will surgically realign his patella by reconstructing the ligaments that hold the kneecap in place. The surgery and a two-day recovery in the hospital will cost $392. Let’s help make it possible!
