Our good friend Sim Sao has a sister in law suffering from elephantiasis. She is going to Battambang Emergency Hospital tomorrow for some surgeries to her hand. Her entire family (10) came with her last month for the evaluation. Emergency offered to perform the surgeries for free, but she needed to have it done very soon.
She came back today. She and Sao will go check her in tomorrow and the surgeries will be performed next week. We will go to Battambang to check on her in a few days.
After her recuperation and therapy she can go home to her village near Kampong Cham.
We are all chipping in to help with the family costs of getting her here the first time (very scary for her) and to help with her recuperation after she returns home.
She's had the problem for a long time, but through the help of some good people here we found a doctor at Emergency who was happy to help.
A good story for a change.
