Reach is a 11-year-old student from Cambodia. He is the youngest in his family, with two older sisters and one brother. He is in sixth grade at his primary school, and likes English class. He wants to be a doctor when he grows up. In his free time he loves playing football with friends, and watching TV.
Nine years ago, Reach had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his left ear to perforate. He experiences pain, discharge, hearing loss, and high fever from his ear infection.
Reach traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 7th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will carry out surgery on his ear. Now, Reach needs help to raise $231 to fund this procedure.
Reach said, “I hope my ear will have no more pain after surgery, and that I will hear better. I want to be able to study at school and spend time with my friends happily.”
