Srey Touch is a street food vendor from Cambodia. She is married and has a daughter. She likes to play games and watch TV in her free time.
Twenty years ago, Srey Touch had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Srey Touch experiences ear discharge, tinnitus and headache. She cannot hear well.
Srey Touch traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On October 16, 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 hearing improves after the operation.”
