Pisal is a 25-year-old electrician from Cambodia. Pisal married his wife four months ago and they are now expecting their first child together. His wife works in a factory. Pisal enjoys playing football, exercising, listening to music, and helping his family with cooking and cleaning.
In September 2020, Pisal was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a closed fracture of his left forearm. First he sought treatment at a Khmer traditional healer who provided a bamboo sling. This treatment was not successful and he is still in pain. He experiences pain and swelling, and it is still very difficult for him to use his left arm.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On October 14th, Pisal will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will heal his fracture and allow him to use left arm again without pain.
Pisal said, “I hope after surgery my left arm is back to normal so I can get back to work and prepare for my child to be born.”
