Chen is a 29-year-old construction worker living with his grandmother and extended family in Kampong Chhnang province in Cambodia. Chen's two younger siblings are still in school, while his mother, who is divorced from their father, works in a factory in Thailand. A year ago, Chen was in a road traffic accident where he was hit by another motorbike. This resulted in an open fracture of his right leg. Chen was taken to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery to stabilize his tibia and femur. The cost of his hospitalization was over $4,000 and Chen has run out of money and can no longer pay the hospital fees where he is being treated. His fractures have not healed, he is unable to walk without crutches, and he is in chronic pain. In addition, the nerves in his leg have been permanently damaged. He experiences a drop foot and a loss of sensation. The tibial external fixation site has become infected and Chen lives in great discomfort. Although the surgeons had hoped to save his leg, it was determined that he needs an amputation. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, can help. On May 16th, Chen will undergo an amputation at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre to rid his leg of the chronic infection, reduce Chen's pain, and eventually improve his mobility with a prosthesis. Chen is able to contribute $100 but needs help to raise $379 more to fund the procedure. After surgery, Chen hopes he will be able to walk easily again and return to work.
