Khortichas is a 36-year-old potato farmer from Cambodia. She has four children and in her free time she likes to cook for her family, take care of the housework, and watch television.
In 2016, Khortichas was involved in a motorcycle accident, fracturing her lower left leg. She went to Calmette Hospital where doctors fixated hardware to help align and heal the fracture. Now, the hardware is causing her discomfort and she has pain and cannot work.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On July 9, Khortichas will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $214. This procedure will help to relieve the pain and allow her leg to heal so she can walk normally.
She says, “I hope that my surgery will be successful and the hardware will be removed so I can go back to work and walk normally.”
