Nareth is a 15-year-old girl from Cambodia. She has two sisters, one brother, and hopes to become a tailor when she gets older.
When she was eight years old, Nareth had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Nareth experiences discharge, itchiness, pain, and hearing loss. She has difficulty communication clearly with others and can no longer attend school.
Nareth traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 17th, 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.
Nareth’s mother says,”I hope that my daughter’s surgery goes well so I won’t have to worry about my daughter’s condition and she will feel better.”
