Sidaneth is a 24-year-old cashier from Cambodia. She has two brothers and two sisters, and enjoys hanging out with her friends in her free time.
Two years ago, Sidaneth had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Sidaneth experiences hearing loss, discharge, itchiness, and dizziness. She is unable to communicate well with others and this makes it difficult for her to work.
Sidaneth traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 21, 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.
Sidaneth said, “I hope that my hearing will improve and I will no longer have an ear infection.”
