Heng is a 10-year-old girl from Cambodia. She likes to study science and the Khmer language. She wants to be a teacher when she grows up. She enjoys drawing and watching TV with friends. She has one older brother.
For the past two years, Heng has had a recurrent infection, which causes nasal obstruction, runny nose, sneezing, and hearing loss. In order to get rid of the infection, she needs to have a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy surgery.
Fortunately, surgery is scheduled for April 26. Now, her family needs help raising $221 to fund the procedure.
Her mother says, “I hope my daughter’s infection goes away after the surgery. I don’t like seeing her sick all the time.”
