Sok is a 39-year-old farmer who is married and has two children who are in primary school. Sok enjoys raising chickens, cows, growing vegetables around her house, and teaching her children.
In 2011, Sok had an ear infection that caused her right ear drum to perforate. This causes her to experience tinnitus, ear discharge, and hearing loss. She cannot communicate efficiently and is uncomfortable being around others due to the discharge and smell.
Sok traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 21st, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her right ear, in which the surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is requesting $464 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Sok shares her hopes for recovery, “I hope my hearing will improve so I can communicate with others more easily.”
