Meas is a 17-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He has two older brothers and one young sister. His parents are farmers. In addition to his construction work, he helps his parents with their farming. In his free time he enjoys playing soccer and listening to music.
In July 2020, Meas was burned on his head during an electrical accident at a worksite. He has developed an infected wound on his scalp and is in constant pain.
When Meas learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two-and-a-half hours seeking treatment. On August 6th, surgeons at CSC will perform a skin flap procedure to to close the wound in his head and allow his burn to heal properly. Now, he needs help to fund this $787 procedure.
Meas shared, “Since my injury I cannot work or help my family and they are worried about me, so I hope I recover quickly so that I can work again.”
