November 14, 2022

Vibol is a 38-year-old farmer from Cambodia. He is married and has one son and one daughter who are students at the local public school. He and his wife work as rice farmers and own several cattle. Vibol used to work in construction, but switched to farming after his accident. In his free time, he enjoys playing chess, fishing, and listening to the news on the radio.

Ten years ago, Vibol fell off of scaffolding while working in construction. He fractured his mandible and both legs in several places. He had an open reduction internal fixation procedure, but has developed subtalar arthritis secondary to the fracture of his left heel bone. He experiences chronic pain in the foot, is unable to walk well, and has difficulty helping his family.

When Vibol learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On November 14th, surgeons at CSC will perform a subtalar fusion of the left heel. After surgery, he will be able to walk without pain and work to support his family. Now, Vibol needs help raising $600 to fund his procedure and care.

Vibol shared, “I am in pain and feel helpless because I cannot do many things. I hope to walk again to support my wife and children.”
