Sophat is a 61-year-old rubber plantation worker who is married with three sons and two daughters. He enjoys listening to music and following the news on the radio.
In July of 2014, Sophat was driving his motorbike when a car hit him from behind. He was brought to a hospital in Vietnam, where he underwent an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) procedure to repair a left forearm fracture. Unfortunately, Sophat’s symptoms did not improve, and he now experiences daily pain.
Sophat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), from his brother. He traveled for three hours with his daughter to reach CSC for treatment. On January 23, Sophat will undergo a second ORIF procedure to realign his previous left forearm fracture. After recovery, his fracture will heal and allow him to feel comfortable once again. CSC is requesting $411 to fund this procedure.
