Hongdarorm is a fourth grade student from Cambodia. He has an older sister and two older brothers. He likes drawing and playing football. He wants to be a doctor when he grows up. He enjoys drinking coconut juice.
Four years ago, he was burned by a fire on his foot. Burn scar contractures have developed, tightening the skin around his burn. It is difficult for him to walk and bend his toes.
When Hongdarorm learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 1, surgeons at CSC will perform a burn contracture release surgery to to mobilize his foot and toes again. Now, he needs help to fund this $448 procedure.
He says, “I am looking forward to playing football with my friends after surgery.”
