Kanha is a 23-year-old police officer from Cambodia. She lives with her parents and two siblings in Siem Reap province. Her parents are rice farmers, her oldest sister is also a police officer and her youngest sister is still in high school. In her free time, she helps her parents in the rice fields, goes to cafes with her sisters, and enjoys listening to music. Two months ago, Kanha was in a traffic accident, resulting in trauma to her right leg and a laceration on her right arm. She was rushed to an emergency hospital and treated for a fracture in her right leg. Since the accident, she has experienced limited function in her arm. Her doctors advised her to visit Phnom Penh for treatment. She has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on her right side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. Now, she cannot move her right arm and is unable to work, or carry out everyday activities like driving her motorbike. Kanha traveled to our medical partner's care center, Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre to receive treatment. On May 30th, she will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, she will be able to use her arm again. Kanha is able to contribute $100 but needs help in raising $609 more to fund this procedure. Kanha shared, "I hope to lift my arm again and go back to work to help support my family."
