Neth lives with her mother, who is a rice farmer. Her parents divorced 24 years ago, and her father lives elsewhere. Neth has six siblings. She works hard to help support her family, but in her free time, she likes listening to music, doing exercises, and watching comedies on TV.
Five months ago, Neth was in a car accident and injured her right hip. She was taken to a local government hospital where they determined she had a compression fracture. Now, Neth cannot stand or walk without crutches and is experiencing on-going pain.
Fortunately, she was referred to Watsi’s Medical Partner CSC for treatment. The doctors at CSC will perform a decompression surgery in order to re-join the fracture, heal her nerve damage, and free her from her pain. Once Neth fully recovers from the procedure, she will be able to walk easily again.
Neth said, “Since this accident, I have been so worried about my mom and brothers and sisters since they have little support. I hope I can walk again quickly after this surgery, so I can work again and sell groceries.”
