Meng Heng is a three-month-old boy and the youngest child in his family. His mother works as a tailor, while his father is a soldier. He also has a six-year-old brother in first grade.
When Meng Heng was born, his parents noticed that he had a small growth at the front of his left ear. The growth has been identified as a skin pit, or a sinus tract traveling under the skin that doesn’t belong there. It is marked by a tiny opening to the tract, in front of the ear and above his ear canal. His parents noticed that the tag has grown, and also that Meng Heng experiences drainage from his ear.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is helping Meng Heng receive treatment. On January 10th, he will undergo a preauricular skin pit excision and drainage. Now, he and his family need help raising $296 to fund his procedure and care so he can grow up healthy.
His mother shared, “I want his ear to be fixed so he can grow up strong and healthy and not have problems hearing.”
