Sakim has been married for 11 years and has one son and one daughter. His wife sells soft drinks and coffee in the primary school. In his free time, he likes playing football, playing volleyball, listening to music, and watching TV.
Unfortunately, Sakim fractured his left elbow about two months ago during a football match. After the accident, his family took him to several hospitals for consultation as well as seeking Khmer traditional medicine. His arm has not been repaired, and he is in pain most of the time. His arm is swollen, his elbow is stiff, and he cannot use his hand. Doctors diagnosed a complex fracture of his elbow, which can be repaired with an open reduction surgery.
Sakim hopes that after surgery the fracture will be fixed, and he will be able to use his elbow without pain so he can go back to work.
