Maly received treatment for chronic ear infections.

Maly’s surgery was a success! His doctor at Children’s Surgical Centre writes, “The patient will no longer have discharge from his ear and his hearing should return soon. Maly is very happy and is glad he can already hear a little better. He looks forward to going back to school. His mother is thankful that her son got the operation he needed.”

Say hello to Maly, a 16-year-old from Cambodia who is in tenth grade. His favorite subject is math, and he enjoys playing chess during his free time.

Four years ago, Maly perforated his eardrum. He has been having chronic ear infections and discharge since then, and has now been diagnosed with chronic otitis media. This condition is associated with inflammation, persistence of fluid in the ear, and hearing loss.

Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, tells us, “Maly cannot hear well in school, so he often misses what the teacher is saying.” This will only continue to get worse and may even become permanent, if he does not receive proper treatment.

For only $400, we can fund Maly’s myringoplasty, a surgical operation that will repair the hole in his eardrum. As a result, his hearing will improve, his infections will end, and he’ll be able to succeed in school. Let’s get to work!

Da

Da is a 67-year-old man who lives with his wife and son in a village on the border of Thailand. Da cannot work since his vision deteriorated three years ago. Da's wife is a homemaker, and his son works as a day laborer. In his free time, Da likes to listen to gospel songs. Starting three years ago, Da's right pupil gradually turned white. The vision in his right eye also blurred over time. Later on, the vision in his left eye also became blurred. When he went to Mae Sot Hospital, the doctor diagnosed him with cataracts in both his eyes and told him he would need surgery. However, when Da told the doctor the he had experienced seizures in the past, the doctor ordered a CT scan to check if the problem with his vision is being caused by a brain tumor. Currently, Da cannot see anything and can only perceive light. He needs someone to guide him to the toilet and help him take a shower because he cannot see. Doctors want Da to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Da's CT scan and care, scheduled for November 29th. Da says, "If my vision is restored, I will teach my son how to farm the land and grow crops. I will also volunteer at the Church as much as I can."
