Lo is a 41-year-old rice farmer and married with one son and one daughter. Lo’s daughter is in 7th grade, and her son has just finished school and works as a farmer. In her free time, Lo enjoys watching TV, sewing, cooking, and taking care of her children.
On March 3rd, Lo slipped and fell, fracturing her left elbow. At first, she received traditional Khmer treatment in the form of a bamboo splint, but her arm did not heal. Now, it is difficult for her to use her arm and she experiences swelling and chronic pain when she attempts to move or flex it.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 27th, Lo will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will help her use her arm easily again.
Lo shared, “I am thankful that I can return home and be healed after surgery. This will allow me to farm again and feed the chickens.”
