Sak has six children and one grandson. A few months ago, she moved in with one of her daughters, her daughter’s husband, and grandson. Her daughter works in a clothing factory to support their family. Her favorite thing to do is spend time with her family, especially her grandson.
Last December, Sak was doing housework when she fell and broke her hip. Since then, she has not been able to walk and is in pain. She has trouble sleeping and is no longer able to care for her grandson.
When Sak and her family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On January 29th, surgeons at CSC will perform a hip hemi-arthroplasty procedure on her right hip. This will help her to regain mobility. Sak and her family need help raising $544 to fund her procedure and care.
Sak said, “I hope after surgery I can walk again.”

Sak underwent surgery on her hip so she can walk again.
Sak had successful surgery to treat her broken hip. Within a month or two of healing and doctor-recommended exercises, she can resume her normal activity and hopes to walk unaided again. This is important for her to be able to contribute to her family.
Sak shared: “I am very happy that I had surgery hip with a specialist doctor and got a good result. I look like I was born again because I can walk with my right leg without pain again. CSC is a very good centre for surgery because have good surgeons and all the staff work hard, are friendly, and take care of patients like their families.”
