Srey Pich is doing well after surgery. She’s recovering quickly and is never late for her physiotherapy appointment in the afternoons. Her dad will take her home soon, so she can continue physiotherapy at home as her hand function improves. Srey Pich will be able to do everyday tasks with her right hand.

Srey Pich is six years old and lives in Cambodia with her family.

She was born with congenital club hands, which is making many activities difficult for her. She complains about difficulty eating, carrying things, and writing in school. Currently, her left hand has better function, so she uses it to write and eat. However, she is right-handed and prefers the right hand.

Srey Pich and her family visited our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, to receive care. The doctors informed her parents that she would need a procedure called pollicization and centralization to help her right hand function again. Her procedure is scheduled for November 23.

Srey Pich’s procedure will cost $448 and her family is appealing to Watsi for financial assistance.

“I want to be a teacher when I grow up,” says Srey Pich.

Josephine

Josephine shared that she has been struggling with chronic lower back pains for 7 years. She has been under medication and physiotherapy, but without improvement. Doctors recommend a Lumbar Discectomy Surgery to avert the possible advance effects of the condition, which could affect her backbone and the spinal cord. If not treated, Josephine risks having prolonged pains, numbness, and loss of muscle strength that can result in paralysis. Josephine's back problems started in November 2012 while she was doing her laundry. She felt clicking sound on her lower back accompanied by sharp pains. She visited a nearby hospital for treatment. Josephine was put on physiotherapy and pain medication. For the last 7 years, she has been visiting different health facilities but her condition keeps deteriorating. Josephine was referred to Watsi's Medical Partner Care Center Kijabe Hospital by a friend who had received the same treatment in the facility. Josephine doesn’t have a source of income. She is a full time housewife who has dedicated all her time to raising their three children aged between 4-13 years, and taking care of her family. They live in a two-roomed house that costs $30 per month. Her husband is a lorry driver and their family depends on his sole source of income to pay rent, school fees, medical expenses, and for survival. Josephine depends on her husband’s medical cover where she is listed as a beneficiary. Several trips to different hospital has depleted their coverage and family’s little resources. They have been also been relying in the the national health insurance fund which can cover only part of the total cost of the surgery and treatment. She is appealing for financial aid to support the remaining cost of $1,500. Josephine says, “I have lived with this pain for long but it’s now becoming unbearable. I need this surgery and treatment to get my life back to normal again."
