Channa is a 7th grader from Cambodia. He has two brothers and enjoys playing soccer and watching television after school.
Two years ago, Channa had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his right ear to perforate. For this reason, Channa experiences discharge, tinnitus, and hearing loss. He cannot listen clearly to others and has a difficult time communicating.
Channa traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 11th, he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in his 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.
“I hope that my son will no longer have any ear problems and he will not suffer from anymore hearing loss.” -Channa’s Mother
