Reach is an inquisitive two-year-old toddler from Cambodia who loves playing with toy cars and eating his favorite meal: fried meat with milk! He has an older sister, who is in primary school. His father works as a policeman, and his mother works as a seller at the local market. When Reach grows up, he wants to be a policeman just like his father!
For about a year, Reach has been experiencing fevers, snoring, a sore throat, and difficulty swallowing and drinking. Despite his mother taking him to multiple medical clinics, his condition has not improved. Reach was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids. If not treated, his symptoms will persist and possibly intensify over time.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $265 to fund a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy for Reach. On August 8th, surgeons will remove his tonsils and adenoids, hopefully relieving him of his symptoms and helping him live much more comfortably.
Reach’s parents share that they hope he will feel better soon and sleep easily at night.

Reach underwent a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy so he can live much more comfortably.
Reach and his family traveled three hours to CSC for his surgery. He had a successful operation and his fears were soothed by the gentleness of the ENT staff who took good care of him. He spent a few days in the hospital until surgeons were sure he could travel home. He will now be able to grow up without worrying about the infection coming back. He can breathe easily, swallow his food without pain, and sleep much better at night.
Reach’s mother said: “We are thankful to the staff and for the success of the operation. Now we can return home and not worry about always having to find a clinic for Reach when he is sick. He has an appetite and will grow like other children and do well in school. Thank you. He will have a chance at a good life.”
