Srey Nich is a third grade student from Cambodia. She enjoys playing with her two older sisters, watching television, and hopes to become a teacher when she gets older.
When she was just one year old, Srey Nich accidentally walked over a burning substance on the ground. She has since had to have one toe amputated, and is unable to walk or move her foot without difficulty. She also has a difficult time wearing shoes that fit her feet properly.
When Srey Nich learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On October 09, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to allow her to move her foot and flex her toes normally and walk with ease. Now, she needs help to fund this $448 procedure.
Srey Nich’s mother said, “I hope that my daughter will be able to walk normally again and will no longer have to suffer from her accident.”
