Thyda is a 13-year-old primary school student. She has three sisters and one brother, and she is the youngest of her siblings. She likes drawing and watching TV in her free time.
For two years, Thyda has experienced ear discharge and buzzing in her right ear. She was treated with ear cleaning and a nose rinse, but her symptoms did not improve. Another organization, All Ears Cambodia, referred her to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). Surgeons at CSC will perform a mastoidectomy to remove an abnormal growth, a cholesteatoma, from her ear. Her treatment is scheduled for February 13.
However, Thyda’s family cannot afford this treatment, so CSC is requesting $842. Thyda’s grandmother hopes that she will feel better and hear easily.
