Orn is a 29-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He lives with his wife and two children. After working in the rice field he helps his wife to do housework and take care of his children. In his free time he enjoys playing football.
In March 2020, Orn was in a motorbike accident that caused a fracture of his left ankle. He went to a public hospital in Phnom Penh where a plate and screws were fixated on his left ankle to heal the fracture. Now, the hardware is exposed and infected. It is difficult for him to walk, and he is experiencing chronic pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On April 27th, Orn will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will help him walk better after the screws are removed and it will help him not to feel uncomfortable.
“I hope that I will be able to walk better and go outside easily. I also hope that I can help my wife with her work,” Leang Orn shared.
