Davin joined Watsi on January 9th, 2015. 21 other people also joined Watsi on that day! Davin's most recent donation supported Licheng, a young girl from Cambodia, so she can hear well again and succeed in school.
Davin has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 2 countries.
"Licheng is in grade 8 at school," writes our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre. "She likes all kinds of Khmer food and likes to do Khmer traditional dance in her free time. She also likes to read school books." Licheng has chronic otitis media, or inflammation of the middle ear, which affects her hearing and interferes with her ability to enjoy these activities. "Licheng started having discharge from her right ear when she was seven, and has also developed hearing loss in that ear. She gets self-conscious when she has discharge and doesn't want to go to school," says our medical partner. "Her mother is very worried that something worse will happen if she doesn't get treatment soon." Luckily, with our support, Licheng will be able to afford the $400 myringoplasty procedure she needs to save her hearing. With this treatment, Licheng will no longer experience discharge and her doctors are hopeful that her hearing will return to normal. Let's help Licheng pay for the surgery she needs!
“Medhar is my first baby and I love her very much. I am excited to see her able to walk and be healthy,” says Medhar’s mother, filled with hope. Four months after Medhar was born, her forehead began to swell. Her mother took her to see a pediatrician who discovered Medhar has hydrocephalus, an increase in the amount of fluid around the brain. “I expected my baby to be normal and healthy but she is sick. I believe she will be okay. I am waiting for the good results of the treatment,” says Medhar’s mother. If left untreated, hydrocephalus can lead to brain damage, a loss in mental and physical abilities, and even death. $1,260 will fund a shunt placement surgery to drain the excess fluid from around Medhar’s brain. “The treatment will increase the chances for her to live a healthy life and allow her to go to school in the future,” reports our medical partner, Project Medishare. Let's pull together for Medhar!
