Phuon is a 27-year-old tuk tuk driver. He’s married and has three sons. In his free time, Phuon shared that he enjoys listening to romantic music and pop songs, playing volleyball, and relaxing at home.
On March 14th, Phuon was shocked on both hands in an accident with electrical wires. This badly damaged the tissue and after three days in a government hospital he ran out of money to cover treatment. He is in pain and cannot use his hands to hold anything.
When Phuon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On April 22nd, surgeons at Children’s Surgical Centre will perform a debridement procedure to remove the dead tissue to preserve and return the function of his hands. Now, he needs help to fund this $787 procedure.
Phuon shared, “I hope after surgery I can use my hands again and get back to work to support my family.”
