Pheap is a 25-year old farmer with one brother and two sisters. All of his siblings are married. Pheap’s father passed away years ago and he now lives with his mother who is a farmer. When he is not farming, Pheap enjoys playing football and listening to music.
While driving a truck, Pheap was in an accident that caused an open wound on his left foot. He went to a clinic where the wound was cleaned and dressed, but within a few days the wound became infected. By the time he came to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), the toe was swollen and he had lost sensation in his left big toe. The toe must be amputated to avoid the spread of gangrene.
On April 6th, surgeons from CSC will amputate the toe to protect his foot from further infection and preserve his mobility. Now, Pheap needs help to fund this $446 procedure.
Pheap shared, “I hope my foot will heal well so I can return to work again.”
