Ly is a father of eight from Cambodia. He is a tuk tuk driver. He has two sons and six daughters. He likes to watch TV and play football with friends.
One year ago, Ly had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his left ear to perforate. For this reason, Ly experiences ear discharge, pain, and tinnitus. He cannot hear well and is in pain.
Ly traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 6, he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in his left 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.
His wife says, “I am worried about my husband’s hearing and ear pain. We hope for a successful surgery.”
