Theara is a clever four-year-old boy from Cambodia. He lives with his parents and younger brother in Prey Veng province. His mom and dad work in construction, while his grandmother cares for him during the day. Theara’s favorite things are playing with toy cars and eating fried eggs.
Three weeks ago, Theara’s grandma noticed he put something from the garden in his nose. She was not able to find the object and assumed he would be fine. Unfortunately, since then Theara has been complaining of pain and has difficulty breathing through his nose.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. Theara and his family traveled to CSC’s care center to receive treatment. On August 16th, surgeons at our CSC’s care center will remove the mass from his nose. Theara is able to contribute $37.50 to his care, and CSC is requesting the remaining $273 to fund this procedure.
His grandmother shared, “I hope my grandson can not be in pain anymore. I want him to go home and be happy to play with his friends and family.”
