Huoch is a 19-year-old farmer who lives in Cambodia. He has five brothers. In his free time, he likes to play football, watch TV, and go to the farm.
When he was five years old, Huoch developed infections in both ears, which perforated both the left and right tympanic membranes. For treatment he took drugstore medication, but his symptoms did not improve. Huoch currently experiences ear discharge, hearing loss, and tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ear). It is difficult for Huoch to communicate with others.
Huoch heard about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), from a relative. He traveled two hours with his mother to CSC for treatment.
On February 22, surgeons at CSC will perform a bilateral myringoplasty surgery to repair the perforated tympanic membranes and stop the discharge and pain. After the surgery, Huoch’s hearing will improve. Watsi is asking for $831 to pay for the procedure. Your donation will help fund the surgeons, assistants, nurses, anesthesiologists, surgical supplies, medication, and four nights stay in the hospital.
