Navin is a 9-year-old student from Cambodia. His parents are farmers, and he has three brothers and one sister. He is in the third grade at school and his favorite subject is math. He likes going on walks with his parents, reading science books, and watching TV. He wants to be a police officer when he grows up.
When he was four-years-old, Navin received a poorly administered injection, causing a flexion contracture of his right knee. He is unable to fully straighten his knee.
When Navin learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he and his family traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On August 5th, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty procedure of his right leg so that he will able to straighten his knee easily and walk without trouble. Now, Navin needs help to fund this $430 procedure.
Navin’s father shared, “I will be glad to see my son walk easily and grow up strong so that he can be a policeman like he wants.”
