Soro underwent shoulder and nerve surgery so he can use his arm again.
Soro had a complex intra-plexus graft and nerve repair and hopes that this surgery can provide him with more mobility of his arm. He will rest in the hospital as his surgical sites heal, and start physiotherapy in three weeks. Although it may take up to six months for complete regeneration of his nerves, he is hopeful that he can regain his strength. Surgeons look forward to seeing him over the next several months to check on his rehabilitation. He is hopeful his life will return to normal and he can go back to farming, riding his motorbike, and playing sports with his friends.
Soro’s mother said: “Our family is so happy that Soro survived his horrible accident and is able to receive help for his injuries. Please thank the strangers who donated so he can return to his previous life. We are grateful to the CSC staff who helped him to have this surgery.”

Soro is an 18-year-old who works as a rice and vegetable farmer. He also has an older sister. In this free time, Soro enjoys playing football, going out with his friends, and listening to music.
In January, when Soro was traveling, he was assaulted and stabbed on the left side of his neck. He went to a local hospital, where doctors cleaned and closed the wound. However, he has not regained movement in his left arm since returning home. Doctors diagnosed his condition as a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in a loss of function and sensation. Currently, Soro cannot lift his arm, which means he is unable to work.
Soro traveled to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment, as CSC’s care center is the only center in the country that provides the surgery he needs to heal. On February 15th, Soro will undergo brachial plexus repair surgery. Upon recovery, he will be able to use his left arm again. CSC is requesting $696 to fund this procedure.
Soro says,” After surgery, I hope I can return to work and be free of pain.”
