Ngok Yiv is a 19-year-old who sells fish along with her husband. In her free time Ngok Yiv enjoys playing games on her phone and listening to music.
On May 17th, Ngok Yiv fell and fractured her right femur, making it difficult for her to walk and do her daily work. She went to a private clinic for treatment, but could not afford the cost of repair surgery. Her neighbor told her about our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) and she traveled there hoping to get the care she needs to be out of pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On June 1st, Ngok Yiv will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $483. This procedure will help her walk easily again.
Ngok Yiv says, “I hope I can get around easily without a wheelchair after this surgery and I can return to work.”

Ngok Yiv underwent a fracture repair so she can walk again.
Ngok Yiv and her husband traveled to our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre, where doctors corrected her leg fracture and placed a cast on her ankle which previously caused her so much pain. She rested in the hospital for several days after the procedure. She will be going through physiotherapy once she is able. Although it may take up to two months for her to heal completely, she is relieved to have this care and hopes her leg will return to normal soon. This will improve her life because she is anxious to get back to helping her husband sell fish, and cook for her family.
Ngok Yiv said: “I am so happy that the surgeons were able to fix my leg and my ankle, it has been so painful and I could not walk or work. Now I can soon care for my family again and take care of myself. I want to thank everyone who supported me so I could have this surgery and return to work.”
