Sipav is a 20-year-old man from Cambodia. He works as a waiter at local wedding parties. He lives with his parents and his older brother. His parents work on their farm together, and Sipav helps them when he is not working. He loves classical music, and going out to eat with his friends.
In April 2019, Sipav was in a motor accident in which he suffered a fractured left tibia. He went to a public hospital, where they installed a nail to repair his fracture. His bone healed and he regained good function of his leg, but the nail is at risk of infection and Sipav needs to have it removed.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On July 6th, Sipav will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. Once the hardware is removed, he will no longer have to worry about further infection or nerve damage.
Sipav shared, “I hope that this surgery is easy and goes well, and that I can work without feeling any numbness or have to worry about the future.”
