Sarith is a 40-year-old father and farmer who lives with his wife and two children in Cambodia. Sarith enjoys spending time with his family, working on his farm, and watching the news. Last month, Sarith was working on his rice and pig farm when he fractured his wrist operating heavy machinery.

Sarith has been unable to work since his injury and his family has had to take turns caring for him. Our medical partners write, “Sarith says he is unhappy that he cannot work and feels like a burden on his family.”

For $300, Sarith will undergo surgery to reset the bones in his right wrist. This operation will ensure that Sarith’s wrist heals properly so he can return to work on the farm and continue supporting his family!

Brian

Brian is an 11-year-old boy, living with his grandmother and two younger siblings. Brian's mother left when they were young and his grandmother has been raising them. She practices small scale farming on her land, in an effort to provide for the family. About a month ago, Brian came to his grandmother and told her that he was different from the other boys he knows. Brian's grandmother brought him to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, which means that he has an undescended testicle. His grandmother was told that Brian would need surgery to correct this condition. Without surgery, he risks infection, strangulation, cancer, and the possibility of infertility, down the road. Brian will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. He is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on June 16th at Nazareth Hospital, and African Mission Healthcare Foundation is raising $483 to cover the total cost of Brian's procedure and care. After surgery, Brian will continue to be the active young man that he has always been, helping his grandmother to take care of his younger siblings, and secure in the knowledge that he is just like all of the other boys he knows. “My daughter left me with these children to struggle with them. And since they are my grandchildren, I love them and would not like any of them feeling unwell; especially Brian because he helps me a lot. I plead for support so that he can be treated and be well to continue assisting me and also be like the other boys,” said Brian's grandmother.
