Srey Neth is an eight grade student from Cambodia. She wants to be a doctor when she grows up. She enjoys studying mathematics and reading.
Thirteen years ago, Srey Neth had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Srey Neth experiences hearing loss, tinnitus, and ear discharge. She cannot hear and is uncomfortable from the recurrent ear discharge.
Srey Neth traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On June 12, 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.
She says, “I hope my ear is healed after surgery and I can hear better. I look forward to returning to school.”
