Sophorn is a 32-year-old coffee seller. She’s married and has two daughter who are both in school. Sophorn’s husband is a farmer and tuk tuk driver.
Three years ago, Sophorn was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of her right tibia. She went to a government hospital where a doctor fixated hardware to heal the fracture. Now the bone is healed and the hardware needs to be removed to avoid infection and further pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On April 22nd, Sophorn will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304.
Sophorn says, “I’m hoping the procedure goes well and I heal quickly.”
