Ching is a 22-month-old girl from Cambodia. She is the youngest of two siblings, with one brother and one sister. Her siblings go to school and her parents are farmers. Ching likes playing with her siblings, painting, and looking at picture books.
Three months ago, Ching fell down while she was walking. She seemed to be injured, and when her parents took her to a local clinic, they found that her left hip was dislocated, making one leg shorter than the other. Due to this condition, Ching cannot walk easily, and overtime her condition will worsen.
When Ching learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for three-and-a-half hours seeking treatment. On July 1st, surgeons at CSC will perform a joint stabilization procedure to change position of hip and allow it to develop normally. Once the proper position of her hip has been restored, Ching will be able to walk easily. Now, Ching needs help to fund this $518 procedure.
Ching’s mother said, “I hope that my daughter will be better, have no pain, and walk easily.”
