Meet Kao, a 21-year-old farmer. Kao has one sister and enjoys watching movies on TV. Kao traveled three hours with his mother to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment.
In early December of 2016, Kao fractured his left femur in a motor vehicle accident. He was treated by a Khmer traditional healer, but his symptoms did not improve. He relies on crutches to walk, and he is in significant pain.
On January 13, surgeons at CSC will perform a procedure to reconstruct the fracture, which will enable Kao to walk again. CSC is requesting $411 to fund his care.
“After the surgery, I hope I can walk properly again,” says Kao.
