Sok Lao is a 42-year-old man with one son and one daughter. In his free time, he likes to listen to music, watch the Khmer channel on TV, and read newspapers.
On December 28, Sok Lao fell from his house and fractured his left hip. He went to a hospital in Phnom Penh for treatment, but his symptoms did not improve. It became difficult for Sok Lao to walk, and he was experiencing pain in his left hip.
Sok Lao traveled for three hours to seek treatment at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). On January 3, surgeons at CSC performed a total hip replacement surgery on Sok Lao’s left side. After recovery, he should be able to walk easily again. CSC is requesting $781 to fund this procedure.
