Rathana is a student from Cambodia. He loves action movies and playing soccer. He wants to become a policeman in the future.
When Rathana was five years old, he was accidentally burned by boiling water in his home. Burn scar contractures have developed, tightening the skin around his arm and armpit, making it difficult to lift his arm, and limiting his mobility.
When Rathana learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On October 3, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him improve the function and mobility in his arm. Now, he needs help to fund this $448 procedure.
He says, “I hope I can move my arm normally.”
