Narin is a nine-year-old student from Cambodia. He lives with his mother, who is a factory worker, and his father, who is a construction worker. Narin has two younger siblings, who he enjoys looking after. He also loves to play football with his friends. His favorite meal is fried chicken and orange juice!
For the past year, Narin has been experiencing a sore throat, difficulty swallowing, and snoring at night. His frequent illness also causes him to miss school. Narin was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time if not treated.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $265 to fund a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy for Narin, which is scheduled to take place on August 15th. During this procedure, surgeons will remove Narin’s tonsils and adenoids, hopefully relieving him of his symptoms and helping him live much more comfortably.
Narin’s mother says, “I hope he gets better after surgery so he can go school again.”
