Chhorn is a 56-year-old rice and vegetable farmer from Cambodia. He is married and has three sons and one daughter. Two of his sons are married and work in construction. Chhorn enjoys talking with friends, listening to the news on the radio, and watching TV.
Two years ago, Chhorn began experiencing hip pain and is now unable to walk. He has avascular necrosis of the right and left hip, meaning a lack of blood supply is causing the death of the bone tissue in his hips.
Fortunately, a neighbor told Chhorn about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). At CSC’s care center, surgeons will perform a total hip replacement to relieve Chhorn of his pain and allow him to walk easily. Treatment is scheduled for July 20th. Chhorn needs help raising $1,118 to pay for this procedure.
Chhorn says, “I hope I can walk without pain after my surgery.”

Chhorn underwent hip replacement surgery so he can regain mobility and walk more easily.
Chhorn’s hip replacement surgery was successful, and he was able to take steps without as much pain the following day. He will be able to resume his normal activity and hopes to return full capacity on his farm soon.
Chhorn’s wife said: “We are relieved the doctors could ease Chhorn’s hip pain. The difference is amazing, his hip already feels stronger. It was difficult for me to manage the farm by myself and see Chhorn in pain, and now he is better. We are so grateful to have affordable health care available. Thank you to the people who made this available to Cambodians who need this help.”
