“Touch is very excited to have his leg healed and be back to working for his children, so his wife doesn’t have to shoulder the load of supporting everyone,” reports our medical partners at Children’s Surgical Centre. Touch is a 38-year-old father of five children and nine months ago, he was in a serious motorcycle accident in his town in Cambodia.

Touch severely broke his leg in the accident several months ago. He has not been able to walk well or work in his auto shop since then, causing him to be extremely dependent on his wife. Touch has been on bed rest for months and loves when his friends and neighbors come to visit him, but is looking forward to being able to leave his house soon!

For $405, Touch will have his leg operated on to properly set his fracture. After this surgery, Touch’s leg will heal properly so that he can walk once again without pain and return to his active life as a husband, father, and friend!
