Lavy is a motorcyle taxi driver from Cambodia. He is married and has two sons. He likes to watch TV in his free time.
Twenty years ago, Lavy had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his right ear to perforate. For this reason, Lavy experiences discharge, itchiness, tinnitus. He cannot hear clearly.
Lavy traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 7, he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in his right ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
He says, “I hope I have no more ear pain after the operation.”
