Sothavy is a two-year-old girl from Cambodia. She has two older brothers, and she enjoys watching television and playing games.
In February 2018, Sothavy was involved in an accident and burned both of her hands with hot water. The accident has left severe burns on both hands, fingers, and wrists, and the skin has since healed and tightened around her burn. It is difficult for her to move her fingers and hands.
When Sothavy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On August 14, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her regain movement in her fingers and hands and allow her to grow up with little difficulty from her accident. Now, she needs help to fund this $448 procedure.
Her mother says, “I hope that my daughter’s surgery goes well and she will be able to heal and her hands will look better and she will be able to move them again.”
