Vicheth is a 40-year-old man who works along side his wife as tailors. Together they have one daughter. Vicheth enjoys listening to music while he works and spending time at home with his family.
About twenty years ago, Vicheth had a severe ear infection that caused the tympanic membrane, or the eardrum, in his right ear to perforate. As a result, Vicheth still experiences ear discharge and tinnitus. He has tried different medicines but none have alleviated his pain or symptoms.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Vicheth receive treatment. On May 4th, he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in his right ear, during which surgeons will close the perforation. CSC is requesting $487 to fund this procedure, which covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care. Vicheth’s family was able to gather $100 to contribute to his medical care.
Vicheth says, “I hope my ear heals quickly and I am able to hear well and not have any more discharge.”

Vicheth had successful surgery to repair a perforated eardrum.
About twenty years ago, Vicheth had a severe ear infection that left him with a perforated eardrum, causing tinnitus and ear discharge. The medicines he tried didn’t help, and his symptoms could have become much more serious with time, possibly resulting in permanent hearing loss. We’re happy to share that he had successful surgery to repair his eardrum, and has returned home. Vicheth will use antibiotic drops to decrease any risk of re-infection and return to the hospital in a week for his stitches to be removed.
This surgery will help him to live more comfortably and improve his hearing and communication. He hopes to return to work soon and looks forward to eliminating the costs of the medicine he had been using.
Vicheth said, “I am so grateful that my hearing will return and I won’t have pain or ringing in my ears. I will be able to hear my customers, work to support my family, and be useful. Thank you to the staff and the donors who helped me to have this surgery.”
