Ravoeun is a 22-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He resides in Svay Reng province with his wife and his mother. His mother works as a housekeeper, while his wife is employed at a hair salon in their village.
In July 2019, Ravoeun was in a motor vehicle accident and fractured his right tibia. He went to a local hospital, where physicians implanted hardware to stabilize the fractured bone. Now that the bone has healed completely, Ravoeun wants to have the hardware removed from his leg.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 9th, Ravoeun will undergo a hardware removal procedure at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre, which will cost $304. Once he has recovered from the surgery, Ravoeun will be able to continue with his construction work without experiencing the discomfort caused by the hardware in his leg.
Ravoeun said: “I hope that the hardware will be easily removed, and the ache in my leg will be gone.”
