Chhang is a 22-year-old construction worker in Kampong Speu, Cambodia. Chhang comes from a large family; he has four brothers and two sisters. Several of his siblings are married; he lives with his parents who are rice and mango farmers. He enjoys hanging out with his friends, singing songs, and playing football.
A month ago, Chhang fell off his motorbike late one night on a bumpy road on the way home from work. He suffered a right femur fracture, and lost consciousness. His family took him to the local hospital, who referred him to Children’s Surgical Centre for specialty care of his fracture. He is in constant pain, unable to walk or place any weight on his injured leg.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On January 5th, Chhang will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will heal his fracture and help him to walk again.
He said: “I hope my leg will be fixed, and I will be able to walk again and work to help support my parents and my siblings.”
