Risen is a single child from Kampot Province, near the coastline of Cambodia. She enjoys eating fried fish and drinking milk, as well as reading books and playing soccer with her friends. Her favorite subject to study is Khmer literature and English, and she hopes to teach English Literature in the future.
For the last three years, Risen has suffered from nasal congestion, difficulty breathing, and restless nights with poor sleep. Surgery will treat Risen’s infection in her nose and throat, and relieve her of her symptoms so she will feel better and can concentrate at school again.
“I hope that my niece will no longer experience any difficulty with her breathing, and she will be able to swallow and sleep easily at night again.” -Risen’s Uncle
