Sopheap is a 55-year-old farmer from Cambodia who is married and has three daughters and two sons. In her free time, she likes to watch TV and plant vegetables behind her home.
In April 2017, Sopheap fell off of a chair, which caused her to dislocate her right shoulder. She went to a Khmer traditional healer for treatment, but her symptoms did not improve. Since she fell, Sopheap has been unable to use her shoulder and she is in pain.
Sopheap heard about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), from her neighbor who had been to CSC before. She traveled for four hours with her sister to reach CSC for treatment.
On July 13, surgeons at CSC will perform a reduction procedure to restore Sopheap’s dislocation to the correct alignment and relieve her of pain. The $390 requested to fund Sopheap’s treatment will cover the full cost of the procedure, including a hospital stay, labs, radiology, supplies, and surgeon time.
