Bondit is a nine-year-old student from Cambodia. His mother is a farmer and his father sells bread he bakes himself. Bondit enjoys school and works hard in mathematics. His sister helps him with his work and they watch TV together after school.
About ten months ago, Bondit was in a motor accident in which he suffered a fracture to his right femur. His family took him to a provincial hospital where he received two operations, one implanting hardware. His surgical wound became infected, however, and over time he has lost mobility in his knee. Now he can no longer attend school and his family has had to spend above their income in order to pay medicine for his leg.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On June 3rd, Bondit will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will clean his wound and the problematic hardware, and fix the fracture so that it can heal normally. He will be able to walk normally after recovery.
Bondit said, “I can’t wait to get better and go back to playing soccer with my friends at school.”
