Krib is a 48-year-old farmer who is married with two sons and one daughter. When not outside on the farm with her husband, Krib likes to keep her house clean and cook for her family.
On and off since she was young, Krib has experienced ear infections. These infections caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left side ear to perforate. Krib now feels ear and face pain with uncomfortable discharge and hearing loss. Krib has spent a lot of money at pharmacies for medications, but her symptoms have persisted. Krib now struggles to communicate with her family and shared that she feels embarrassed about her hearing loss.
Krib traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On June 6th, Krib will undergo a procedure in her ear where surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is raising $487 to fund this procedure, medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Krib’s husband shared, “I hope she stops having ear infections and her hearing will improve.”

Krib underwent ear surgery so she can hear and communicate clearly.
After surgery, Krib remained in the hospital for several days and was given antibiotics and eardrops to aid in healing and decrease any risk of reinfection. After her ear heals in a couple of weeks, her hearing will improve, and she will no longer have frequent infections or ear discharge. This will improve her life because the infections and pain made it difficult for her to work and socialize with friends, which she shared was embarrassing for her.
Krib said: “I am relieved that my ear has been fixed and I will hear well again. This will help me communicate with my family and friends. I would like to say thank you to the doctors who fixed my ear and to those who helped to pay for my care.”
