Bunthan is a 32-year-old farmer from Cambodia. He is happily married and has two sons. Bunthan makes instruments for fishing and plants vegetables behind his home. In his spare time, he enjoys watching boxing matches.
On January 2, 2007, Bunthan was in an accident that left him with a fracture. He went to a Khmer traditional healer for treatment. Six years later, he got into another accident. Bunthan went to a private clinic, where doctors attached a plate and screws to his humerus. The plate helped his injury heal but has recently started to cause pain and discomfort.
Doctors at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), have scheduled surgery on February 14 to perform a plate removal from his left humerus. CSC is requesting $411 to fund this procedure. Bunthan looks forward to being free from pain.
