Thai is a 28-year-old security guard from Cambodia. When he was young, his parents were divorced and he lives with his mother, who works as a cleaner in a local company in Phnom Penh. Thai does everything around the house to help take care of his mom and when he is not working, he enjoys listening to music.
Five months ago, Thai was in a motor vehicle accident that caused an open fracture in his left tibia. He went to get treatment at a local hospital, however, his fracture has yet to heal. After treatment the bone was still rotated. Thai experiences pain and cannot walk well. Furthermore he is at risk of infection.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 11th, Thai will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. The surgery will set Thai on the quick path to recovery, helping him walk again and regain strength in his leg.
Thai said, “My mother is so worried that I cannot help her anymore, and that I cannot continue my work. Once my leg is healed and I have no pain, I want to help her again too.”
