Bua Banh suffered a terrible leg injury during his earlier days in the logging industry. He was hit hard in the leg by a log he was pulling down hill; this accident resulted in a large fracture. After receiving medical treatment by the Sayboroury Mobil Clinic, Bua Banh had a 20cm long chunk of bone removed from the damage sight. Bua Banh walks with a limp to this day.
Care for his wounds is on ongoing ordeal, as you will see in the video below. Our goal is to raise $500 for Bua Banh to aid in some of the medical expenses required to care for his leg.
