Matt Ly is a 41-year-old tuk-tuk driver from Cambodia. He is married and has two sons and one daughter. His oldest son is in the 6th grade, his daughter is in the 3rd grade, and his youngest son is not in school yet and stays home with his mother. When Matt Ly has free time, he likes to play with his children or go on walks with his family.
In December 2022, Matt Ly was in a motorcycle collision and fractured his left radius (forearm). Currently, his arm is swollen and in constant pain, and he cannot drive his tuk-tuk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On January 3rd, Matt Ly will undergo a fracture repair procedure to heal his arm so he can return to work to support his family. CSC is requesting $483 to cover the cost of this procedure. Matt Ly was able to gather $100 to contribute to his care.
Matt Ly shared: “I need to drive my tuk-tuk to feed my family. I hope I can use my hand again soon.”
