Kakada is eight-year-old student from Cambodia. He is the youngest of two children in his family. His parents are farmers. He is finishing grade one at school and loves playing sports.
In November 2018, Kakada suffered a fracture of the femur in his right leg after a fall. He was operated on at another hospital, where they installed hardware to repair the bone. However, the wound did not heal properly and Kakada developed an abcess and infection on his right thigh. This infection is painful and prevents Kakada from being able to walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On June 2nd, Kakada will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. After treatment, his wound will heal normally and he will finally be able to regain strength in his leg, eventually walking and running normally again.
Kakada’s mother said, “I hope that he will not miss school because of this injury. I am worried because we have tried many times to fix his leg but he still has this problem. I want him to run again like before.”
