Kruy is a 40-year-old rice and vegetable farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons and two daughters, and enjoys doing the housework and watching movies.
Twenty years ago, Kruy had a serious ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Kruy experiences discharge, tinnitus, and itchiness. She cannot hear clearly and has a difficult time communicating well with others.
Kruy traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 24th, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her left ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $464 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
“I hope that after surgery, my wife’s ear infection will stop and she will no longer have any ear discharge and her hearing will improve.” -Kruy’s Husband
