Amira underwent a myringoplasty ear surgery.
Amira has had recurrent ear infections, and suffered from ear discharge, pain and ringing in the ear for the past 3 years. Doctors discovered she had a perforated tympanic membrane and with your support, they were finally able to correct it. After a course of antibiotic ear drops, Amira will return to the hospital to have her stitches removed, and will no longer suffer from recurrent infections or hearing problems. She looks forward to going to school and would like to be a teacher when she is older.
Her mother is happy and said, “thank you to the staff for surgery. I expect my daughter’s ear pain to stop, for her to have improved hearing, and no ear infections now.”

Amira is a four-year-old preschooler from Cambodia wtih two younger sisters. Her father is a merchant and her mother works in their home. When she is not at school, Amira loves playing with her sisters!
One year ago, Amira had a serious ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Amira experiences pain, discharge, and hearing loss. She cannot communicate clearly with others already making it difficult for her to learn in school.
Amira traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 18th, 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 $464 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Her mother said, “I hope she will not be in pain anymore, and her ear discharge will stop and hearing will improve.”
