Am is a 56-year-old farmer who is married with three sons and four daughters. He likes to listen to the news on the radio and watch boxing on TV.
In 2016, Am fell from a palm tree, causing severe hip pain on his left side. He went to a Khmer traditional healer for treatment, but his symptoms did not improve. Am has been diagnosed with a hip fracture. He is unable to walk without the support of crutches, and he is in pain.
A neighbor told Am about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). On March 24, surgeons at CSC will perform a hemiarthroplasty procedure, which entails replacing one half of the hip joint with a prosthetic, while leaving the other half intact. He now needs help to raise $450 to pay for treatment. This procedure will allow Am to walk easily again.
