Vanneth is a 9-year-old, third-grade student from Cambodia. He goes to school every day, likes Khmer literature, and wants to be a policeman when he grows up.
Six years ago, he was burned by fire on his left foot. After the accident, his family took him to a health center for wound repair. He has since developed a left foot burn scar contracture, which makes it difficult for him to wear his left shoe due to the tightening of the skin around the burn.
On February 18th, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him bend his toes and walk normally again. Now, he needs help to fund this $477 procedure.
Vanneth shared, “I hope that my foot will look normal and that I will be able to walk correctly again.”
