Srey Pov is an 18-year-old student. Srey Pov’s parents are rice farmers and her father drives a moto-taxi in his free time to earn extra income for their family. They live four hours away from the capital city in the Kep province. Srey Pov has one sister and one brother. Srey Pov told us that she enjoys watching Youtube to learn about beauty tips!
In 2009, Srey Pov had an ear infection. This infection caused the ear drum in her right ear ear to perforate. Srey Pov now experiences pain, discharge, and tinnitus. The tinnitus and pain disturbs her studying and makes it difficult to communicate with others.
Srey Pov traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 10th, Srey Pov will undergo surgery in her right ear ear to close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $487 to fund this procedure, medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Srey Pov says, “I hope the pain will stop and my hearing improves after surgery.”

This will improve her communication and help her to perform better in school.
Srey Pov said: “Thank you to the staff and everyone who helped me. I was ashamed when I had infections and could not hear or go to school. I feel better now and look forward to finishing high school. My mother is happy because she won’t have to pay for medicine that didn’t work.”
