Chea is a 46-year-old tailor from Cambodia. She has three daughters and three grandchildren. She specializes in sewing wedding dresses, and in her free time she enjoys cooking for her family, watching TV, and listening to the radio.
In January 2020, Chea slipped in the bathroom, causing a fracture in her right femur. After that, she first received treatment from a traditional healer in her village. After a month the treatment was still unsuccessful, and her injury has since swelled up and her pain has increased. Currently, she cannot walk at all.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 6th, Chea will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will reduce her pain and allow her to walk again.
Chea said, “I hope that my femur will finally be healed after my operation, that I can walk again and get back to my sewing.”
