Chouliya is an eight-year-old student from Cambodia who is in second grade. To support their family, her mother sells goods at a local market, and her father works as a construction worker. Chouliya enjoys studying Khmer in school. She also loves spending time playing games with her sister. Her favorite meal is roast duck with cold milk.
For the past two years, Chouliya has been experiencing a sore throat and difficulty swallowing. Her mother shares that she also snores every night. Her family sought treatment from a private clinic, but Chouliya’s condition unfortunately still has not improved. She often experiences fevers, inflammation, and a lack of appetite. She was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids. If her condition is left untreated, her symptoms will persist and possibly intensify over time.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Chouliya receive treatment. On July 12th, surgeons at CSC will remove her tonsils and adenoids, hopefully relieving Chouliya of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably. Now, she and her family need help raising $265 to fund her procedure and care.
Chouliya’s mother shares, “I hope that her sore throat goes away and she has a better appetite.”
