Sokunkanha is a 3-year-old girl from Cambodia. Sokunkanha has two older brothers who are in the 3rd grade. Her father is a factory worker and her mother is a farmer. Sokunkanha enjoys playing with toys with her brothers, painting, watching TV, and spending time outside with her mother.
One year ago Sokunkanha received multiple injections in her right thigh as a treatment for bronchitis. After the injections, her mother noticed she was having trouble walking and running. Standing for long periods causes Sokunkanha pain and she is unable to walk easily.
When Sokunkanha’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On September 29th, surgeons at CSC will perform a right patella realignment to realign the patella of her right knee allowing her to walk easily again. Now, Sokunkanha’s family needs help to fund this $518 procedure.
Sokunkanha’s mother said, “I hope her knee and leg will be fixed now so she does not have to have more surgeries later on to fix this problem.”
