Phal is 53 year old metal seller from Cambodia. He and his wife have been married for 40 years and have eight children, who are all married. In his free time he visits with his grandchildren, and helps his wife with house work.
In March 2013, he was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his left knee. His wife took him to a local hospital where doctors installed a plate to fix the fracture. The bone was mostly healed, but recently his knee has become painful and swollen, and a small infected wound has appeared, spreading from the plate on his knee. This has made it difficult for Phal to walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On August 5th, Phal will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will remove his infection and allow his knee to completely heal.
Phal shared, “I am happy that I can have this surgery that will stop my swelling and pain, so I can keep working.”
