Reaksmey is a 38-year-old rice farmer and musician from Cambodia. He is married and his wife works in a garment factory. The couple has two daughters, ages 19 and 13.
In November 2014, Reaksmey was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of both hips. After the accident, he visited a government hospital where doctors fixated hardware to heal the fractures. Now that the fractures are healed, the hardware needs to be removed to prevent future complications.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On November 16th, Reaksmey will undergo a hardware removal procedure. After the procedure, he will be fully recovered from his accident. Now, he needs help raising $304 to fund his procedure and care.
Reaksmey shared, “I hope I can recover quickly so I can return to work to support my family.”

Reaksmey underwent hardware removal surgery so he can fully recover from surgery.
Reaksmey had a quick surgical procedure to remove the hardware from his femur fracture. He will undergo a short period of antibiotics to reduce the chance of infection, and start physiotherapy to gain strength and flexion of his leg. Recovery will take approximately six weeks. He hopes to walk unaided and return to his farm as soon as his surgical incision has healed.
Reaksmey’s wife said: “We are glad Reaksmey’s leg will finally be better, and it was time to take out the metal so he can fully heal. He wants to work hard in the fields to help our family. Thank you to the CSC staff and all the people who helped him.”
