Chorvy is a 19-year-old student from Cambodia. She lives with her parents and her two younger siblings. Her father is a welder, and her mother is a clothing factory worker. Chorvy is taking courses in management at a local university, and when she isn’t studying, she likes to read books.
Several years ago Chorvy was in a motor vehicle accident, and sustained facial trauma. Since then, she has had headaches, nosebleeds, and nasal congestion on the left side of her nose. Medications purchased from the pharmacy do not alleviate her symptoms. As a student, she cannot afford to pay for a private clinic consultation, but she is finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate or study when she has headaches. She is afraid she might have to drop out of school if she is not able to keep up with her classes.
A friend told her about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). Doctors at CSC’s care center have diagnosed her with a left deviated septum, and have scheduled her for unilateral endoscopic sinus surgery on August 8th, at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. After she has recovered, Chorvy should be able to live symptom free. Now she needs your help to fund this $319 procedure. This sum will cover her surgery, medication, and hospital stay.
Chorvy said: “I hope the surgery stops my headaches and it will be easy to breathe.”
