Ponleu received care to repair his vision and is expected to make a full recovery.

Our coordinator in Cambodia says, “Ponleu’s surgery will make everyday life so much easier. Ponleu was adamant that he return to school as quickly as possible as he had already missed a few days of classes. You can see in the photo his eye is still red and puffy, but the doctors gave him the okay to leave first thing in the morning the day after his surgery.”

“I am happy,” Ponleu said with a smile.

Ponleu is a student. He studies English and Finance at a school in his home province near the Vietnamese border, but he’s constantly straining his eyes because of strabismus, a condition that can cause permanent vision problems and fatigue if left untreated.

Ponleu needs a $250 surgery to treat his strabismus and realign his eyes so he can continue with school. He comes from a family of farmers, but his dream is to work at a bank.

Ponleu loves playing tennis, listening to music, and spending time with his friends. His father recently passed away, but he is determined to succeed in school and create a good life for himself.

Bernard

Bernard is a father of four from Kenya who came to our facility with a left knee injury he sustained after falling on a rock, a few days ago. Unable to raise funds required, he could not come for orthopaedic review. A week later, Bernard received support from his brother who paid for his transportation to our hospital. He had x-ray imaging done and diagnosed with closed knee fracture of his left patella. He walks in pain and his knee is swollen. Bernard operates a tractor after missing out on studies due to financial constraints. His monthly income is quite negligible to meet the cost of surgery. His wife sells at a grocery shop in the local market to provide for their our children. With the fracture, Bernard is not able to provide for his family. They appeal for help. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 22nd, Bernard will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The surgery will reduce chances of further complications on the fracture and allow him to walk with ease. Bernard was able to contribute $50 toward his treatment, but does not have the funds for the full treatment. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure. Bernard says, “I want to get treated so that I can go out to provide for my family. There is no one to help them now when I am injured. I am looking forward to stepping on my feet again.”
