Sopheap is a 33-year-old housewife from Cambodia. She has two sons, and in her free time she likes spending time with her family.
Six months ago, Sopheap had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Sopheap experiences discharge, pain, hearing loss, fever, and tinnitus. She is unable to hear clearly and has a difficult time communicating well with others.
Sopheap traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 04, 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.
Sopheap said, “I hope that after my surgery is complete, my hearing will improve and I will no longer have any ear pain or discharge.”
