Sokea is a 20-year-old security guard from Cambodia. He is the youngest of three siblings. His parents are farmers and he lives near them, occasionally helping them out with their farm work. In his free time, he likes listening to classical music, playing video games, reading books and meeting friends.
In September 2018 he was in an accident in which his motorcycle was hit by a car, causing a fracture to his left femur and an injury to his left shoulder. He went to a local hospital and received a surgery in which plates were installed in both his left forearm and left leg. The injuries healed well over time, but Sokea still feels some pain where the hardware was installed, so it must be removed.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On August 4th, Sokea will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will relieve any pain he feels and allow his injuries to fully heal.
Sokea shared, “I am so happy that my injuries healed and I can walk well. After this surgery I will forget about my accident and enjoy my life.”
