This is Vanny, a 43 year old man who works in a factory in Cambodia. He is married with four sons and two daughters. Vanny enjoys listening to the radio, doing work at home, and watching the news on television.
A few months ago, Vanny fractured his left elbow when he fell. This caused him elbow pain, and ever since then, he has been unable to bend his arm. He traveled three hours with his wife to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), to seek treatment.
With $405 in medical expenses, surgeons at CSC will perform an ORIF procedure (open reduction and internal fixation) to reduce the broken bones and reattach them in the correct position using screws or rods. Slow mending should heal his fractured elbow and allow him to use his arm free of pain again.
After treatment, Vanny can soon return to work in good health and in no pain.
