Sopheaktra is a medical student from Cambodia. He is studying medicine and spends all his time reading.
In late November 2015, he was in a motorbike crash and broke his tibia. He went to a clinic, and doctors used a nail and internal hardware to fuse the bone. Now the hardware is ill-fitting, and it’s painful for him to walk or stand up for a long period.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On December 18, Sopheaktra will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $214. Surgery will help him walk easily again.
He says, “I want to continue my studies and my work.”
