Thin is a 49-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He and his wife have been married for 20 years and have three sons together. His sons have had to stop their schooling so that they can help work and raise more money for the family. Thin spends most of his time working and taking care of his animals, but he also enjoys listening to the radio in his free time.
In July 2019, Thin was in a motor accident in which he suffered a fractured left tibia. His family took him to a local private clinic, where his fracture was repaired by the fixation of a nail to the bone. He has since healed well and feels no pain, but the nail now needs to be removed to avoid future risks.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On July 7th, Thin will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. After this procedure, he will no longer be at risk of complications such as infection or nerve damage.
Thin shared, “I am thankful that my leg has healed so well, and that I have this opportunity for more care from doctors so that I am well. I hope that the surgery goes well and I can walk easily.”
