Sroeun is a 39-year-old woman from Cambodia who is married with two daughters and three sons. She likes to cook and take care of her kids at home. In her free time, Sroeun likes to help her husband on their farm.
Sroeun developed an ear infection on both sides when she was ten-years-old. This caused both sides of the tympanic membrane (eardrum) to perforate. She experiences recurrent ear discharge, hearing loss, and pain in both ears. Sroeun previously went to a private clinic for treatment, but her symptoms did not improve. Through her brother, Sroeun heard about Watsi’s medical partner, the Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). She traveled for three hours with her daughter to reach CSC for treatment.
To close the perforations, surgeons will first perform a myringoplasty on the left side. Then, after 6 weeks, they will perform the same surgery on the right side. The surgery will treat the infection and heal the perforated eardrums. This will also allow the pain and discharge to stop and her hearing to improve over time.
For $831, Sroen will receive the treatment and case she needs to improve her hearing.
