Thoeun underwent surgery that will improve his breathing.

Thoeun had a deviated septum and a polyp in his nose causing frequent infections. After our partner CSC’s surgeons did a septoplasty, he is able to breathe much better. Thoeun has continued to use antibiotic and normal saline drops to keep the area clean and free from infection.

Thoeun said: “I am happy after surgery. My hope is I will no longer have infections or difficulty breathing.”

Thoeun is a 46-year-old merchant who lives in Phnom Penh with his wife who is a teacher and three children who are in school. They have two sons and one daughter. Thoeun sells duck eggs on the street for a living. In his free time he enjoys watching TV, listening to the radio, and reading the newspaper.

Because of a polyp in his nose, it is difficult for Thoeun to breath. He experiences nasal obstruction, a runny nose, and headaches.

Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. Now, they need your help to fund Thoeun’s $289 surgery.

Thoeun shared, “I hope that after surgery the infections and pain will go away and I will be able to breathe easily.”
