Meet Vibol - a 49 year old a farmer living in Svay Reng province with his wife, who is also a farmer. They have three sons - one of whom is married, one of whom works with Vibol and his wife on the farm, while the youngest son studies at the local public school.
For the past three years, Vibol has suffered from nasal infections and congestion, difficulty breathing, and headaches. This has adversely affected his everyday life, as well as his ability to sleep through the night. He has tried a number of medicines, but nothing has helped to relieve Vibol’s symptoms.
A relative told Vibol about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), where disabled Cambodians can receive care. Vibol and his wife traveled for three hours to consult with the doctors at CSC, who diagnosed him with nasal polyps. They recommended that Vibol undergo nasal reconstruction, to clear the nasal passages, and to restore his breathing. On September 12th, doctors at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre will perform a nasal polypectomy to remove the polyps. After he has recovered, Vibol should be able to breathe more easily. Now he needs your help to fund this $333 procedure.
Vibol’s wife said: “We hope Vibol will get well from this disease after surgery, he will breathe easier, and his headaches will finally stop.”
