Sok is a 42-year-old scrap metal worker from Cambodia. He has a 13-year-old daughter. When he’s at home, Sok listens to the radio and helps to take care of his father.
In January 2020, Sok was in a motor vehicle accident that caused head trauma and a closed fracture of his left leg. His family took him across the border to Vietnam where plate screws were put in his leg to heal the fracture. Now, it is still difficult for him to walk and he is in chronic pain. He feels left knee pain and needs crutches to walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On December 14th, Sok will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. The procedure will allow him to finally be able to walk again without pain.
Sok is hopeful that after surgery he’ll have no pain when walking and can work easily again.
