Sreyda is a 26-year-old grocery seller with five siblings. She currently lives with her parents and her sister. Sreyda enjoys watching movies and spending time chatting with her relatives.
Three years ago, Sreyda had a severe ear infection. This infection caused a cholesteatoma, or an abnormal skin growth, to develop in the middle ear behind the ear drum. This has now caused Sreyda to experience hearing loss, tinnitus, and ear discharge.
Sreyda traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On April 19th, Sreyda will undergo a mastoidectomy procedure in her right ear where ENT surgeons will remove the cholesteatoma. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is helping Sreyda and her family raise $926 to cover her procedure, medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Sreyda says, “I’m really hoping all of the ear discharge will stop and my hearing will improve.”

Sreyda underwent ear surgery to improve her hearing.
Sreyda was encouraged by relatives to visit the Children’s Surgical Centre because of ear infections and poor hearing, which impacted her ability to work regularly. Surgeons successfully removed the abnormal growth, and she stayed at the hospital for several days to recover. She was given antibiotics and ear drops to ensure the infection would not return. When her final stitches and bandages are removed in two weeks, she will have improved hearing and will be able to communicate better with her customers. This will help her maintain a steady income to feed and support her family.
Sreyda said: “My life has improved already because it will be easy for me to work and I feel healthy again. My relatives told me I already can hear them better when they talk to me. I am very thankful to the CSC staff and to the donors who helped me to have this surgery.”
