Yas is a sweet five-year-old who loves to play and watch children’s shows. She is the youngest of four children, and her mother works as a food seller to provide for their family.
Three years ago, Yas developed an ear infection that caused the tympanic membrane, or the eardrum, in her left ear to perforate. As a result, Yas experiences hearing loss and ear discharge, and she cannot communicate clearly with others.
Fortunately, Yas’s family was able to travel to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), to receive treatment. On April 19th, Yas will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her left ear, during which surgeons will close the perforation. Yas’s family was able to contribute $100 and CSC is requesting $487 to fully fund the cost of her treatment and care.
Yas’s mother says, “I hope her hearing will improve and the discharge will stop.”

Yas underwent ear surgery so she can communicate easily with others.
Yas and her family traveled five hours to Children’s Surgical Centre for treatment of her chronic ear infections and hearing loss. Her mother was concerned the treatment would not work, as they had tried many remedies. After surgery, she rested for a few days in the hospital. Her pain has disappeared and her hearing is already better, although it may be a few months before her hearing is fully back to normal. This will change her life because she will be able to communicate better with her family and they won’t have to spend money on expensive treatments.
Yas’s mother said: “I am happy to have my daughter feeling good again; she has felt poorly because she could not hear. Thank you for supporting her to have her ear fixed.”
