“Srey Mom a 33-year-old who lives in Cambodia with her husband and three children,” says our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC).
Srey Mom spends her free time taking care of her family and cleaning her home. For the past eight years, however, CSC explains, “she has had chronic ear infections, which have resulted in what is known as chronic otitis media.”
This long-standing ear infection causes Srey Mom quite a bit of pain. She has a perforated left eardrum, experiences discharge, and has trouble hearing – issues that have made it very difficult for Srey Mom to perform her day-to-day tasks.
With $399 in funding, Srey Mom will receive a myringoplasty—a surgery to close the perforation of her eardrum.
Following surgery, CSC reports, “Srey Mom’s ear will no longer release discharge and her hearing will improve,” allowing Srey Mom to take care of her home and family.
