Rady is a 58-year-old farmer who is married and lives in a rural province of Cambodia.
Seven years ago he went to a government hospital where they diagnosed him with bilateral perforated ear drums and suggested surgery. His family could not afford surgery so instead his wife purchased him hearing aids, but they are now broken. His conditioned has worsened over the years.
Rady traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On January 3rd, he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in both ears. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforations. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $913 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Rady says, “I really hope my hearing will improve and all the ear discharge will stop.”
