Boldkhuyag receives life-changing surgery, after a lifetime of physical challenges

This is Boldkhuyag, an intelligent and beautiful 19-year-old woman in Mongolia. Like many others her age, she wants to pursue her studies and fulfil her potential. But for almost all her life, she had not had the use of her right hand because of an accident she experienced when she was badly burned as a baby.

In high school, Boldkhuyag had difficulty keeping up with writing and with sports. As an adult, she experiences pain when typing on a computer. She was worried that her dreams of studying and pursuing a career would be out of her reach.

But thanks to hand surgery she received from Interplast volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons and local surgeons, she has a renewed hope for her future.
