Vannarapich is a two-year-old boy from Cambodia. He has one brother and two sisters. He likes to play with toys at home.
Four months ago, Vannarapich was burned by boiling water, burning his left elbow. Burn scar contractures have developed, tightening the skin around his burn. It is difficult for him to bend his elbow.
When Vannarapich’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one and a half hour seeking treatment. On July 9, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to to release his elbow stiffness. Now, his family needs help to fund this $448 procedure.
His mother says, “I hope my son’s elbow regains mobility and he can move it again after the surgery.”
