Soknang is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two daughters and two sons. She enjoys taking care of her children and cleaning up around the house.
When she was thirteen, Soknang had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Soknang experiences infection, hearing loss, and ear discharge. She experiences discomfort from recurrent infections and discharge. She has difficulty hearing others.
Soknang traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 12, 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.
She says, “I am looking forward to going home and spending time with my children.”
