Soe is a 31-year old man who was in a terrible motorbike accident about five months ago.
In January 2017, Soe drove his friend home from work on his motorbike. He noticed a transport truck swerving towards him and took a sharp turn away from the vehicle. Soe managed to successfully dodge the truck but hit the highway rail instead. He immediately lost consciousness and woke up in the hospital two days later. Soe spent 15 days in the hospital with four broken ribs, severe cuts on his right arm, a broken tibia, and pain in his neck and left shoulder. Most of Soe’s injuries have been treated, but he still has nerve damage and a dislocated shoulder.
Because of these untreated injuries, he can’t cook, clean, or perform other daily task by himself. He feels as though someone constantly needs to look after him. He is also unable to work, putting a large financial barrier on his family.
Fortunately, Soe will receive treatment for his fracture at our medical partner’s hospital, Maharaj Nakron Chiang Mai Hospital, on July 7. The surgery will cost $1,500.
Soe is grateful for the help, saying, “I’m looking forward to receiving the treatment I desperately require and hope to return to work again.”
