Vin is a 25-year-old cleaner from Cambodia. He lives with his parents and two siblings in Banteay Meanchey province. His parents work as delivery drivers. Vin works in a casino as a cleaner, but after his accident, he has been unable to work. Vin enjoys watching Cambodian soccer and chatting with his friends in the village. Three months ago, Vin was in a motor vehicle accident where his motorbike collided with a car. As a result, he suffered multiple injuries including fractures of his arms and legs. He was taken to a nearby clinic and treated for the injuries. Vin was diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his right side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. Currently, Vin is experiencing difficulty moving his right upper limb, and he has no sensation below the right elbow. Additionally, he experiences chronic pain in his right hand. Vin traveled to our medical partner's care center, Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre, to receive treatment. This is the only center in the whole country where this treatment is available. On July 9th, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he will be able to use his hand and arm again. Vin's family is able to contribute $100 but needs help to raise $609 more to fund this procedure. After surgery, he hopes to see improvement in his arm function so that he can return to work and help support his family.
