Phannaroth is a two-year-old boy from Cambodia. He is an only child and, when he is at home, he enjoys playing with his toys, watching cartoons on television, and going for walks with his family in the evening time.
Phannaroth was born with syndactyly of both hands. This means that his thumb on his left hand and his four fingers (excluding his thumb) on his right hand are fused together. He is unable to pick things up, and it is difficult for him to move on the ground.
Fortunately, on February 24th, surgeons will perform a syndactyly repair procedure to separate and release the fused digits. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $398 to fund this procedure. After surgery, he will feel more comfortable after treatment and he will be able to use both of his hands normally again.
“I will feel so much happier once my son can receive treatment for his condition and I am so thankful that the doctors are able to treat him.” -Phannaroth’s Mother
