Rachany is an only child and lives with her mother who supports them by working in a garment factory. Rachany enjoys school and playing with her friends; her favorite subject is math; and she would like to be a police officer. Rachany’s favorite meal is “lok lak”, a famous Cambodian dish with stir-fried beef, fried egg, rice, and black pepper sauce.
On January 21st, Rachany was cutting a mango at home when she accidentally cut her left index finger. She did not seek treatment at the time, but now, several weeks later, she is concerned that she cannot flex her index finger. Rachany has damaged the tendon and needs surgery to restore mobility in her finger.
She traveled 40 minutes to visit our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) to receive treatment. On February 20th, she will undergo tendon repair surgery to restore full function to her finger. Rachany’s family has contributed $100, and CSC is requesting an additional $572 to fully fund this procedure.
Rachany shared that she hopes she can fix her finger and go back to school after the operation.
