Setha is a 54-year-old high school teacher from Cambodia. He lives with his wife, one of his sons, his daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren in Koh Kong province. His wife stays home to manage the household and cares for their grandchildren, while his son and daughter-in-law work as rice farmers. In his free time, Setha enjoys watching the news on his phone. In January 2024, Setha was in a motorcycle collision with a truck and fell on his left shoulder hard on the pavement. At that time, he lost consciousness and was transported to a nearby hospital for surgical treatment of several broken bones. Unfortunately, since then, he has not been able to lift his hand or use his arm. Setha has been afraid to seek further treatment due to costs. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his left 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. He cannot lift his arm or use his hand, and he cannot work. Setha traveled to our medical partner's care center, Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre, to receive treatment. This is the only center in the country where this treatment is available. On June 19th, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he hopes to use his arm again. Setha is able to contribute $100 and our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, is requesting $609 more to fund this procedure. Setha shared: "I wish to do daily activities like before the accident and work again."
