Sokleap is a 4th grade student from Cambodia who has three siblings and enjoys playing soccer, playing games with his friends, and listening to music.
Three years ago, Sokleap had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his right ear to perforate. Sokleap now experiences itchiness, tinnitus, and pain. He has hearing loss and is unable to hear others clearly or communicate well at school.
Sokleap traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On December 10th, 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.
“I hope that I will no longer have to worry about my son and that his ear will recover.”
