Son is a 51-year-old rice and vegetable farmer with two sons and four daughters. Son lives with her husband who is also a farmer and their youngest daughter who is still a student. In her free time, Son enjoys playing with her grandchildren, teaching her daughter to cook, and tailoring clothes for her family.
Seven years ago, Son had a severe ear infection that caused a perforated eardrum in her left ear. As a result, Son experiences chronic pain, ear discharge, hearing loss, and ringing in her ears and she cannot communicate clearly with others.
Son traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On March 16th, she’ll 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 $464 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Son shared, “I hope my hearing will improve and I can be free of pain.”
