Pang is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has one son. She likes to watch TV and listen to the radio.
Three years ago, Pang had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Pang experiences tinnitus, vertigo, ear discharge, and hearing loss. She cannot hear well.
Pang traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 12, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her right 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 doesn’t hurt anymore and I can hear clearly after the operation.”
