Sreynich is a 35-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons and one daughter, and likes to do housework in her free time.
When she was ten years old, Sreynich had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in both ears to perforate. For this reason, Sreynich experiences ear discharge, pain, irritation, and hearing loss. She is unable to hear clearly, affecting her speech and communication with others.
Sreynich traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 9, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in both ears. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforations. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $831 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery, the infection will stop and my hearing will improve.”
