Meet Samnang, a 16-year-old from Cambodia. His name means “lucky” in Khmer. Samnang lives at home with his family and has three younger sisters. He recently started a job in construction with his dad.
In November, Samnang fell while working and fractured his femur. His parents brought him to a local hospital, where the doctors stabilized the fracture. However, the hardware that was put in place to stabilize his femur has become infected. For the last three days, Samnang has had a fever and experiences pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On January 5th, Samnang will undergo a hardware removal procedure to reduce his pain and help him walk again. CSC is requesting $304 to fund this surgery. Samnang’s family gathered $100 to contribute to his care.
Samnang shared: “I hope I can feel better after this surgery.”
