Srey is a mother of four from Cambodia. She likes to cook, do housework, and play with her kids in her free time.
Four years ago, Srey had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Srey experiences pain, tinnitus, hearing loss, ear discharge. She has a difficult time communicating properly with others.
Srey traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 6, 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 $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery, my ear will heal and I will be able to hear clearly again.”
