Seyha is a waitress from Cambodia. She has three siblings. She likes to listen to music and read books.
When she was five, Seyha had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Seyha experiences pain, discharge, tinnitus, and hearing loss. She cannot communicate easily with others.
Seyha traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 5, 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.
Her mother says, “I hope my daughter’s hearing is better after the operation.”
