Thy is a 54-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three sons, two daughters, and one grandchild. She spends her time looking after her family and going to the pagoda. She also enjoys cooking.
In January 2020, Thy fell in a deep open pit when walking. The accident caused a fracture on her right tibia. Initially she went to a local hospital for emergency help. The treatments they offered her were unsuccessful and her right leg still has an unhealed fracture. She cannot walk or move in any direction and is experiencing pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On April 23rd, Thy will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. After this procedure, she will be able to move her leg again with no pain.
“I hope that my leg will have no pain, and the bone and wound will be healed,” Thy said.
