Sokim is a newborn baby from Cambodia. She is only one month old. Her parents are farmers from Ratanakiri province and has one older sibling.
Sokim has clubfoot on both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Sokim traveled 10 hours to seekcare from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). There, surgeons will perform an achilles tendon lengthening procedure on August 4th. CSC is requesting $385 to fund Sokim’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, her feet will be able to develop normally, so that she will be able to walk easily.
Sokim’s mother shared, “I want to see my daughter walk and run and play with her friends, so I am glad that we have the opportunity for this treatment.”
