Kheng is a 56-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He is a husband and father of two sons and four daughters. In his free time, he likes to watch Khmer boxing on TV, listen to old songs, and listen to the news on the radio.
In July 2016, Kheng fell from a height of two meters, resulting in a fracture in his left kneecap. As a result, he developed muscle atrophy, the wasting of muscle mass, in his quadriceps. It became difficult for him to extend his left leg, and he experienced a lot of pain.
He traveled for two hours with his wife to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), to receive treatment. Surgeons will perform an open reduction internal fixation procedure, a surgical procedure that fixes severe bone fractures, in his left leg. The treatment is scheduled for February 2, and it will allow Kheng to walk easily again. Our medical partner is requesting $411 to fund the treatment.
