Leun is a 49-year-old married father of two sons and two daughters. He lives with his wife who is also a farmer. Their eldest daughter is married and lives with her husband’s family. Their eldest son is a monk, and their youngest children are still in school.
Fifteen years ago, Leun developed gangrene on his left leg after a snake bite. His leg was amputated and he has ambulated with a prosthetic leg since then. Recently, he developed a wound at the amputation site that causes him pain and makes walking difficult.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a stump revision surgery to help the area heal and to allow Leun to walk again. The surgery will take place on September 7th, and now he needs help raising $352 to fund his procedure and care.
Leun shared, “I am thankful that I will be able to return to work without pain. Then I can walk easily and support my family.”
