Koemhong is 8 years old and in the second grade. He is the only child of his parents, who are both farmers in Cambodia.
When Koemhong was three, he received a poorly administered injection in his right thigh which has caused a severe contraction of his quadricep muscle. He is unable to fully straighten his knee which now makes it hard for him to walk.
When Koemhong’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On September 22nd, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty procedure of right knee to help him walk again. Now, Koemhong needs help to fund this $430 procedure.
Koemhong’s parents said, “After surgery we hope our son will be able to walk easily with no pain.”
