Samphors is a 27 years business woman from Cambodia. She and her husband have been married for four years and have one son. They work together on their business, selling drinks, and take turns looking after their son. Samphors likes riding her bike, cooking for her family, and tailoring fun outfits for her son.
In 2018, Samphors had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Samphors experiences hearing loss, tinnitus, discharge, and constant mild pain. She cannot communicate clearly with others, and must take time to clean the discharge every other day.
Samphors traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 6th, 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 $464 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Samphors shared, “I hope that after this surgery I can stop spending money on medicines and get rid of my ear pain and discharge, so I can live comfortably with my family and enjoy life.”
