Meet Meng Ly, a nine-year-old 2nd grade student, living with his father - who is a rice farmer - and younger brother.. Meng Ly enjoys reading and playing football when he is not in school.
A year ago, Meng Ly developed a sore throat, and also began to experience difficulty swallowing, and hearing clearly. Frequently unwell, Meng Ly began to miss school. Finally, he was diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which require surgical intervention, to prevent his symptoms from persisting, and possibly intensifying over time.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $265 to fund a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy for Meng Ly, which is scheduled to take place on September 8th, at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. Surgeons will remove his tonsils and adenoids, relieving Meng Ly of his symptoms, and enabling him to live much more comfortably, and to enjoy the life of a nine year old boy.
Meng Ly says: “I hope I can eat and drink without pain.”

Meng Ly underwent a tonsillectomy so he can eat and drink without pain.
Meng Ly and his father traveled six hours to have surgery at our medical parter CSC. He rested in the hospital for a few days and took antibiotics to avoid any further infection. He was instructed to eat only soft room-temperature non-spicy food and only warm water drinks to avoid any disruption of the surgical site. He can now breathe easily and can sleep much better at night. His health will improve and he is anxious to return to school and to his friends. His father is relieved he won’t have to spend money on treatments that did not work for Meng Ly.
Meng Ly’s father said, “We are happy that my son feels so much better. He wants to go to school, and he is eating more. Thank you for helping us so he can grow up like other boys and be successful.”
