Chhanun is a one-year-old child from Cambodia. She likes to play with toy cars and enjoys eating fruit.
Four months ago, she was burned by hot water. Burn scar contractures have developed, tightening the skin around her fingers. She cannot hold things or easily move her fingers.
When Chhanun’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, they traveled for six and a half hours seeking treatment. On February 12, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to to help her use her hands again. Now, her family needs help to fund this $448 procedure.
Her father says, “I hope my daughter can use her hand freely again.”
