Lak is a 41-year old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has been married for 23 years and has three sons and one daughter. His favorite pastimes include feeding the chickens and pigs near his home, planting vegetables, and watching boxing on television.
In November of 2019, Lak was hit by a vehicle and fractured his left leg. After receiving initial treatment at a nearby hospital, Lak still experiences swelling and pain in his leg, and he is unable to walk easily on his own.
When Lak learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On March 4th, surgeons at CSC will perform a debridement procedure to remove the infected skin from his injuries and to fit Lak with hardware that will allow his fracture to heal. Now, Lak needs help to fund this $273 procedure.
He shared, “I hope that surgery will fix the bone in my leg and I will no longer have any pain or swelling and can walk well again.”
