Katoeurrina is a bright, young student from Cambodia. Her father is a motorcycle taxi driver and her mother sells soft drinks. Katoeurrina has four other siblings—two brothers and two sisters. When she is not in school, she loves to play with her friends.
Two days ago, while playing with friends, one of them put several dried beans in Katoeurrina’s right ear. Her father tried to remove the beans but was unsuccessful. Her ear canal feels full, she has pain, some bleeding, and cannot hear clearly now. She cries frequently and does not want to go to school.
Katoeurrina’s family traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On December 14th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will remove the mass. Now their family needs help to raise $231 to fund this procedure.
Her mother said: “I hope my daughter’s ear will be better, that she goes back to school, and will learn not to put things in her ears.”

Katoeurrina underwent ear surgery and can return to school.
Katoeurrina was very brave for her surgery, and under anesthesia, the beans were successfully removed from her ear. Her mother will instill ear drops to ease the pain and the full feeling she had will disappear. She had some pain from the inflammation but managed to smile for the CSC team before their family left to return home. Katoeurrina will rest for a few days and then be able to return to school.
Her parents said: “we are relieved her ear will be better. Now she wants to return to school and participate without any pain or hearing difficulty. She can grow up well like other children. Thank you to the people who funded the surgery and hope that they continue to help Cambodians who need help.”
