Sophea is a 31-year-old mother. She has a 10-year-old son who is in public school in fifth grade. After a divorce with her husband, she and her son live with her elderly parents. In her free time, she enjoys watching TV, playing games on her phone, reading joke books, and listening to music. To earn money, she often works as a babysitter in her community.
Sophea was born with a limb and fingers missing at birth. She received a left leg prosthesis when she was six years old, which allowed her to walk. However, over the last month, she has experienced pain from her stump while walking and can no longer tolerate the prosthesis due to the ongoing discomfort and pain.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Sophea to receive treatment. She traveled two hours to visit CSC where surgeons determined she needs a stump revision. Now, she needs $352 to fund her procedure and care.
Sophea shared that she hopes that she can lead a normal life once she has surgery so she can walk without pain.
