Srey Rey is a 19-year-old farmer from Cambodia. She two sisters and three brothers. She enjoys cooking, listening to music, and watching movies.
In February of 2012, Srey Rey was hit by a car, causing a head injury that knocked her unconscious for more than 24 hours. She was taken to a local hospital and, upon regaining consciousness, found she was unable to move her arms. Over time, Srey Rey has regained some mobility in her shoulder and elbow. To this day, she has great difficulty moving both her right and left hands.
Srey Rey traveled four hours to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, in hopes of regaining use of her hands.
Srey Rey is scheduled to receive treatment on January 20. Surgeons will perform a tendon transfer in her right hand, restoring function to that hand. Our medical partner is requesting $450 to cover the cost of the operation, medication, and four nights of hospital stay.
