Srey Nuch is a second-grade student from Cambodia. She has two older brothers, and one older sister. She often enjoys playing games with her friends and watching television and reading books when her classes finish.
One year ago, Srey Nuch had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Srey Nuch experiences pain, discharge, tinnitus, and hearing loss. She has a difficult time hearing others, and cannot listen well in class.
Srey Nuch traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 3rd, 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.
“I hope that my daughter’s surgery will go well so that she can feel better again and I won’t have to worry about her ears anymore.” -Srey Nuch’s Mother
