Aly is a 58-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. His wife recently passed away from liver cancer, but his six children help to keep him company. He loves taking care of his twelve grandchildren and taking them outside to play. He does all the housework at home and when he wants to relax he watches boxing matches on TV.
Six months ago, Aly fell from his roof and fractured his right ankle. He went to a private clinic for treatment, but the wound became infected. He still has severe pain in his ankle and has a difficult time walking. In addition to that, there is pus discharge coming from the wound and the infection will spread if not properly treated.
When Aly learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On July 3rd, surgeons at CSC will perform a debridement procedure to clean the wound from infection. Now, Aly needs help to fund this $273 procedure.
Aly shared, “I hope that my ankle is healed quickly and I can walk just like before. I want to work well and do everything in my life without my children worrying about me.”
