September 8, 2021

Kea is a 47-year-old construction worker. He’s married and has two children, including a nine-year-old son in fourth grade and a 13-year-old daughter in eighth grade. Both of his children study hard in their school and his wife works as a seller at a local market.

In March 2021, Kea fell about two meters from a roof during work and dislocated his ankle. After the accident, he tried a Khmer traditional treatment, but it did not help him heal. He experiences pain while walking and he is unable to work. Kea takes pain medication to ease his symptoms, but he needs additional treatment.

When Kea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On September 8th, surgeons at CSC will perform an ankle fusion with screws and plates so that he is no longer in pain and can use his ankle again. Now, Kea needs help to fund this $518 procedure.

Kea shared, “I hope that I can stop taking pain medication and return to work.”
