Meng Leang is a 25-year-old bank teller. He has three sisters and two brothers. He likes to watch Thai movies, read magazines, and relax at home.
In September, Meng Leang was in a motorcycle accident, and he injured his right shoulder. He was treated with Khmer traditional medicine, but his symptoms did not improve. It became difficult for him to use his right shoulder, and he was in pain.
When Meng Leang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for four hours to seek treatment. There, he was diagnosed with chronic shoulder dislocation. On December 7, surgeons at CSC performed an open reduction internal fixation procedure in Meng Leang’s right shoulder to relieve him of pain and allow him to use his arm comfortably again. CSC is requesting $411 to fund this procedure.
“I hope that I can use my right shoulder better and without any pain,” he shares.
