Meet Chansy, a 32-year-old mother of three living in Cambodia. Chansy loves watching Khmer TV movies and often listens to popular Khmer music.
“Chansy got into an altercation three months ago that left her with a broken forearm. She is constantly in pain and she cannot carry things around the house or go to work,” shares our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). “She had been receiving treatment in her provincial hospital for two months but her arm didn’t heal at all.”
Doctors have recommended an open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), a two-part surgery that will repair Chansy’s fractured forearm. The area around the bone will be “opened” and the broken bone will be re-aligned using a metal internal fixation device.
Due to the severe pain in her forearm, Chansy tells us that she cannot carry things around the house or cook for her children. With $405, we can provide treatment that will allow Chansy to regain mobility and care for her kids!
