Sone

Sone

We met Sone in during our mobile health care mission in the remote area of Oudomxay Province in October 2012. Luckily, our team of US physicians was able to diagnose that Sone suffered from a congenital heart condition called Trilogy of Fallot. In her case, not enough blood was able to reach the lungs to [...]

Noukone & Sayyaseth

Noukone & Sayyaseth

Sayyaseth (19) and Noukone (20) were both riding the family motorbike late at night in 2010 when they were hit by a car that quickly left the scene of the accident. They both suffered multiple fractures. Having only little resources, the family contacted LRF for help. We were happy to take care of their surgeries [...]

Monsay

Monsay

By serendipity, we met Monsay in a small Kamhou village near Vieng Phoukha in Luang Namtha province in September 2009 while en route to Houei Xay where we planned to hold our next plastic surgery mission. A year and a half before meeting him, Monsay then 20 years old was injured in an accident that [...]

Ms. Kamphor

Ms. Kamphor

We met Ms Kamphor in Vientiane during our reconstructive surgery mission in January 2008. The poor seventy year old lady was hit by a run-away car six month earlier. Although the bones of her right leg were fractured and dislocated, she did not see a doctor during all this time because she could not afford [...]

We arranged a cataract surgery for her in September. Thanks to our assistant Sasithone who took good care of her, Joey’s grandmother has now recovered a perfect [...]

Khaehk

Khaehk

While visiting our projects in January 2007, Ms. Santisouk Phimsavanh, a manager at Novotel Hotel, Vientiane, made us aware of Kheahk’s story and proposed to collaborate with the Lao Rehabilitation Foundation to take care of him and his family. Khaehk, 8 years old, has no parents and lives with his 82 years old grandmother and [...]

Mong

Mong

We met Mong while visiting our school project in Simmano in January 2007. Mong was born with an intestinal malformation which was summarily corrected at birth. The problem became much more serious at age seven when we met him. With the relentless efforts of our local coordinator Ms. Sasithone Sengchang, the Lao Rehabilitation Foundation provided [...]

Pheng

Pheng

While visiting our projects in early January 2007, we were alerted by Dr. Leila Srour about the tragic accident of Pheng. The 20 year old boy had been struck by lightning while working in a rice field in his village near Luang Nam Tha. Pheng, who survived the ordeal, was burned over 70% of his [...]

Vang

Vang

Without accurate records, we estimated Vang to be about five years old when we found her at Home of Light in early 2004. Like many other children there, she was born with congenital cataract. Our intuition however was that she could profit from eye surgery as we guessed that she underwent capsulotomy surgery at an [...]
