Sokkoeun is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two brothers and four sisters. She likes to watch TV and listen to classical music.
Nine months ago, she was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture in her left hip. She went to a hospital and doctors fixated hardware to heal her fracture. Now, the hardware is infected. It is causing her pain and she is unable to walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On December 11, Sokkoeun will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $214. This procedure will help her walk easily again.
She says, “After surgery I hope I can walk and won’t have any more pain.”
