Srey Mom is a student from Cambodia. She has five sisters. She likes to read and is studying accounting. She hopes to work in a bank.
When she was six years old, Srey Mom had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Srey Mom experiences recurrent infection and hearing loss. She has difficulty hearing and communicating with others at school.
Srey Mom traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On June 5, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her left 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 hearing improves after surgery so I can continue my school work.”
