Phouri is in eighth grade, and lives with his six year-old sister and his parents in Cambodia. Phouri’s parents work at the local market, selling fish. Phouri is hoping to become a doctor after completing his studies.
Phouri was diagnosed with bilateral genu valgum, also known as knock knees. This condition forces his legs to turn inwards, and makes it difficult for Phouri to walk. Fortunately, doctors at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help improve Phouri’s mobility. On January 5th, Phouri will undergo a procedure at Kien Khleang Rehabilitation Centre to help resolve his condition. Now he and his family need your help to fund the $521 cost of the surgery.
Phouri’s mother said: “After surgery we hope that he can walk and play with his friends more easily.”
