Sokny is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has three sons and four daughters. She likes to listen to music on the radio.
Twenty years ago, Sokny had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Sokny experiences pain, tinnitus, and hearing loss. She cannot communicate clearly with others
Sokny traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On December 3, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her right ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
She says, “I hope my hearing improves and I have no more pain after the operation.”
