Darout is a 30-year-old moto driver from Cambodia. He has been married for five years and has one son and one daughter. Darout’s wife works in a local factory.
Last year, Darout collided with a truck while driving his motorcycle. The incident caused a fracture of his right elbow. After the accident, his family took him to Vietnam where screws were put in his elbow. Now, the screws are exposed, there is pus, and he can not extend his arm.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On September 7th, Darout will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will remove the screws and a wound culture will be taken to check for infection. Once healed, he will finally be able to use his arm again.
Darout says, “I hope after the screws are removed my elbow gets better and I don’t have this pus or discharge anymore.”
