Phally is a 26-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He likes listening to classical music, watching TV, going fishing, and helping around the house.
Two years ago, Phally suffered from a moto accident that injured his left hand. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. He is unable to work on the rice farm and his family has to take care of him.
Phally traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 12, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he will be able to use the full range of motion in his hand again. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $637 to fund this procedure.
He says, “I hope that after surgery I am able to use my hand normally without any pain.”
