Yim is a 42-year-old farmer. She is married and has three sons and one daughter. Three of Yim’s children are in school and one works in a garment factory in Phnom Penh. Yim’s husband is also a rice farmer.
In October 2019, Yim was in a motor vehicle accident in which she fractured her left femur. She went to a government hospital, where doctors surgically implanted hardware to heal her fracture. The bone is now mended and the hardware needs to be removed to prevent future complications.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. Yim is scheduled to undergo a hardware removal procedure on August 4th, which will cost $230. This procedure will remove the surgical screws from her femur and help ensure she does have future complications and infections.
Yim says, “I really hope the wound will heal quickly after surgery.”
