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.”
