Sophin is a 56-year-old farmer. She’s married and has one son and two grandchildren. Sophin lives with her husband who is also a rice farmer.
In July 2021, Sophin fell from a coconut tree and fractured her left hand. After the accident, she sought treatment from a Khmer traditional healer but her condition did not improve. It is difficult for her to use her hand and she is in chronic pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On October 19th, Sophin will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. After the procedure, Sophin will be able to live more comfortably and her fracture will be able to finally heal.
Sophin shared, “I hope I can use my left hand after surgery so I can get back to my life.”
