Koem Thy is a 51-year-old farmer from Cambodia. He has been married for 20 years and has two school-aged daughters. Koem Thy’s wife is also a farmer. In his free time Koem Thy enjoys watching boxing programs on TV, listening to the radio, and taking care of his children.
In March 2020, Koem Thy was in an accident that caused a fracture of his right forearm. First he sought treatment at a Khmer traditional healer, but it was ineffective. A neighbor told him to come to Watsi’s medical partner CSC and it is still very difficult for him to use his right arm and he is in chronic pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On November 18th, Koem Thy will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will allow him to regain use of his right hand and arm.
Koem Thy shared, “I hope I can get better so I can return to my work soon to support my family.”
