Phally is a 41-year-old vegetable farmer. She is the oldest in a family of five children, including two sisters and two brothers. Phally lives with one of her sisters. When she is at home, she likes to watch movies on TV.
Over ten years ago, Phally had an ear infection that caused a cholesteatoma, or an abnormal skin growth, to develop in the middle ear behind the ear drum. For this reason, Phally experiences hearing loss, tinnitus, and ear discharge.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Phally receive treatment. On October 28th, she will undergo a mastoidectomy procedure at CSC’s care center. During this procedure, ENT surgeons will remove the cholesteatoma. Now, CSC is requesting $925 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Phally shared, “I hope my ear infections and pain will stop. I want to return to the rice field to earn money and be able to hear people well.”

Phally underwent a mastoidectomy to improve her hearing.
Phally and her family traveled two and a half hours to have her procedure at with our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). Her surgery was successful and she remained at the hospital until surgeons were sure she had no complications. When her stitches were removed, Phally was thrilled with the results. Now, she will no longer have frequent infections or discharge and can communicate much better with her family and friends.
Phally said: “I am so happy to talk with other people now. I would like to thank the CSC staff for my care, and the donors who helped me so I can help my family and hear better than before.”
