Sokchea is a 20-year-old factory worker. He lives with his parents, who work as farmers, and an older sister, who works in a clothes factory. Sokchea can no longer work due to an injury and stays home to help his mother in the house. In his free time, Sokchea enjoys playing games on his phone.
In August, Sokchea was in a motorcycle-car crash and fractured several bones in his left foot. He went to a local hospital, where he received pins to heal his fracture. However, the site has become badly infected, and the bone is exposed. As a result, Sokchea is experiencing intense pain and cannot walk.
When Sokchea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On December 15th, surgeons at CSC will perform a debridement procedure to clean up the necrotic skin and allow surgeons to apply a skin graft in the future. CSC is requesting $273 to fund his procedure.
Sokchea shared, “I hope that after this surgery I will be able to walk again and can go back to work.”
