Anam is a 9-year-old from Cambodia. She is in the fourth grade and shared that her favorite subject in school is math. She enjoys eating fried meat and drinking fresh milk. Her mother is a farmer, and her father works in Thailand to earn a living for their family.
Five years ago, she received multiple injections at a medical clinic for unknown reasons. Since then she has had problems and infections on her right thigh. Her knee is stiff, and she is unable to fully straighten her leg. She cannot walk well, or run like her friends.
When Anam’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On February 17th, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty procedure of right thigh and knee to help her walk again. Now, Anam’s family needs help to fund this $430 procedure.
She is hopeful to have full function of her leg and keep up with her friends when they play in the future!
