Neat is a 41-year old-construction worker, who is married and has a nine-year-old daughter who is in 1st grade. Neat’s wife is also a construction worker, and when Neat has free time, he repairs motorcycles to earn more money.
In 2021, Neat developed an ear infection, which caused the ear drum in his right ear to perforate. As a result, Neat now experiences ear pain, hearing loss, tinnitus, discharge, and headaches, and he cannot hear clearly when he is at work.
Neat traveled to Children’s Surgical Centre hoping to receive treatment. On May 5th, he will undergo a procedure on his right ear, during which surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $487 to fund this procedure. This will cover medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Neat says: “I hope my ear heals so the infection stops and I can hear well again.”

Neat underwent ear surgery.
Neat traveled six hours to Children’s Surgical Centre for treatment of his hearing loss and accompanying symptoms. Although it may be several months before Neat’s hearing is back to normal, the surgery will change his life because he will not miss any more work and will be able to communicate better with colleagues and his family.
Neat said: “I felt poorly and was embarrassed because I could not hear at work or at home. Now I can work in construction again to support my family and make sure they are taken care of. I am glad the fever and ringing in my ear will go away. I’d like to say thank you to everyone who supported me to have my ear repaired.”
