November 19, 2020

Cheng is a 73-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has three sons, two daughters, and six grandchildren. Cheng’s wife is also a farmer. When he is not farming, Cheng share that he likes to exercise, do housework, take care of his grandchildren, and spend time with his friends.

Cheng was in an accident and his left knee was dislocated. He first went to a provincial hospital where a cast was applied and he stayed for one week. His knee is still destabilized so his neighbor advised him to come to Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). He arrived at the hospital with a dislocated, swollen, and painful left knee. He cannot walk and uses a wheelchair to get around.

When Cheng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for eight hours seeking treatment. On November 18th, surgeons at CSC will perform a knee fusion procedure so he will be able to walk again without pain. Now, Cheng needs help to fund this $518 procedure.

Cheng said, “I hope after this surgery my knee will be fixed and I can walk again like before.”
