Sor is a 21-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two brothers and two sisters and likes watching You Tube and playing on Facebook.
When she was fifteen, Sor had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Sor experiences ear discharge, pain, hearing loss, tinnitus, and dizziness. She is unable to hear others.
Sor traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 6, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her 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.
She says, “I hope that after surgery, my hearing will improve and I will no longer have any pain or discharge.”
