Phearum is a three-year-old boy from Cambodia. He has two older brothers, and enjoys playing with his toy cars and watching cartoons.
Two years ago, Phearum suffered from burn injuries to his right hand after accidentally coming into contact with an open flame. His wounds have healed but his skin has tightened and he is unable to fully flex for bend his finger.
When Phearum learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On September 9th, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him move and flex his fingers without difficulty. Now, he needs help to fund this $448 procedure.
“I hope that my son will be able to move his fingers and write when he is older, and I won’t have to worry about his condition. - Phearum’s Mother
