Nhoeun is a 62-year-old rice farmer in Kampot province from Cambodia. Nhoeun is married with two sons and three daughters. Nhoeun and his wife are both farmers while his daughters work in a local factory and his sons are soldiers. When not working in the rice paddies, Nhoeun feeds and cares for several cows he keeps at home.
In December, Nhoeun fell off his roof and fractured his left femur. Nhoeun is in pain and cannot walk. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On January 3rd, Nhoeun will undergo a fracture repair procedure and CSC is helping him raise $483 to cover the cost of this life altering surgery. After surgery, Nhoeun hopes to be able to walk again free of pain.
Nhoeun shared, “I hope my leg will be fixed and I can go back to work to support my family.”

Nhoeun underwent fracture repair surgery.
Nhoeun traveled for three hours to undergo surgery to repair a fracture of his left femur. The procedure was successful, and Nhoeun is on the path to recovery! After a short stay in the hospital, he will return home. The physiotherapist team gave him exercises to help improve his gait and gain strength in his leg. Nhoeun is happy with the results and hopeful he will return home to his farm pain-free, thus enabling him to continue growing rice to feed his family. Undergoing this surgery was vital for Nhoeun’s long-term health, as his symptoms could have become more severe without surgery.
Nhoeun shared: “I am happy with the care at the hospital and hope to have no more pain soon. I want to thank the supporters who give money to the hospital so I can have good care and return to my family.”
