Sopheak is a 43-year-old housewife from Cambodia. She has three children and enjoys cooking and taking care of her kids in her free time.
When she was three years old, Sopheak had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Sopheak experiences discharge, smelliness, itchiness, hearing loss, and headaches. She suffers from hearing loss and worries about her condition every day.
Sopheak traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 6th, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her 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 after my operation, the infection will go away and my hearing will improve.”
