Meng Huot is a four-year-old boy who lives with his four older siblings and parents. His father works in construction, and his mother is a seller at the market. Meng Huot enjoys watching TV, playing with toys, and playing games with his siblings. In the future, Meng Huot wants to become a policeman.
For the past month, Meng Huot has had difficult swallowing and breathing. Eating food has become painful, and he is unable to eat many of his favorite foods like fried eggs and soy milk. Doctors at Children’s Surgical Centre discovered that Meng Huot’s tonsils are enlarged, which is causing the discomfort he feels.
On November 11th, surgeons will perform and adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy on Meng Huot to ensure that he can return to breathing and swallowing with ease. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $241 to fund his procedure. Once recovered, his quality of life will significantly improve and he will once again be able to eat his favorite foods.
Meng Huot’s mother shared, “I hope after this surgery my son can be back to normal and in good health again.”
