Dara is a 31-year-old truck driver. He’s is married with two children - a six-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son. His wife works in a shoe factory in their province. When he is home, he likes to play with his children, or play football or volleyball with friends.
In October 2020, Dara was in a car accident and fractured his right arm. He was taken to a local hospital in Kampong Speu province for a plate and screws to heal his fracture. Now the hardware makes his arm ache, and he doesn’t feel strong or able to use it much.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On January 6th, Dara will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. Once the hardware is removed, he can strengthen his arm and fully heal. He hopes it will return to the way it was before so he can be useful in his house and help his wife more to care for their children.
Dara said: “I know I will have pain again after surgery, but I want the metal out so I can fully heal and have a normal life again.”
