Srey Nith is a 15-year-old aspiring dancer from Cambodia. She has six sisters and likes to watch TV and relax.
When she was nine, Srey Nith had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Srey Nith experiences tinnitus, hearing loss, and ear discharge. She has difficulty going about her daily tasks and no longer goes to school.
Srey Nith traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 7, 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.
Her mother says, “I hope that after surgery, my daughter will feel better and will be very happy.”
