Socheat got married last month and was excited to start building his life ahead. He works in a food store and in his free time, he likes to play volleyball, football and listen to music pop songs.
In early March, however, Socheat injured his left elbow while playing football. Now he is in pain and cannot move his arm or work. He went to a private clinic but could not afford the treatment, so his neighbors suggested he visit our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, for medical care. Surgeons diagnosed a dislocated right elbow and recommend a reduction procedure and cast for several weeks to help him heal. This procedure will repair his elbow and give him full use of his arm once he has recovered. Socheat will be able to return to work and support his new family. Now he needs help to fund this $412 procedure.
He told us, “I hope my elbow will be better, and I can use my arm again to return to work to support my wife.”
