Phalla is a 60-year-old vegetable seller from Cambodia. She is a widow with six children, two sisters, and four brothers. She goes to sell vegetables at the market every day, and enjoys cooking and watching movies on TV at home.
In January 2020, Phalla was in an accident when an animal ran into her while she was driving her motorcycle. She endured a left ankle fracture and the treatment provided to her at her local referral health center did not help her much. She is still walking with a crutch. She is in pain and cannot walk well.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On April 29, Phalla will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. With this procedure, she will be able to walk again without a crutch
“I hope that I can walk better without any pain and not have to rely on the crutch. Also, I hope to drive my motorcycle and return to selling vegetables at the market again,” Phalla said.
