Pov is a 52-year-old farmer with one son and three daughters. Her husband died seven years ago so she is raising her children on her own. In her free time, Pov likes to make desserts for her children and grow vegetables.
About one year ago, Pov had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. She cannot communicate clearly with others and she is in chronic pain.
Pov traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 7th, 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 $464 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Pov said, “I hope my hearing can improve and my health will be good after surgery.”
