Chorn is a 33-year-old father of three. Chorn is married; he and his wife both work in a local factory. Chorn’s children are all in public school. When Chorn and his wife have free time, they grow vegetables around their house to support their daily meals.
When he was a child, Chorn had a severe ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his right ear to perforate. For this reason, Chorn experiences pain, fevers, and frequent ear discharge. It is difficult for him to hear in the busy factory and he often misses work because he feels poorly.
Chorn traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 6th he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in his right ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $487 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Chorn shared, “I hope the doctors can help me so I will no longer have infections and can hear better. It is important for me to work to support my family.”

Chorn underwent ear surgery so he can hear and communicate.
Chorn and his wife traveled two hours to treat his chronic ear pain. He had successful surgery at Children’s Surgical Centre and was able to return home after his stitches were removed one week post-operatively. After his incision heals in a couple of weeks, his hearing will improve and he will no longer have frequent infections or ear discharge. Previously, his infection made it difficult for him to enjoy spending time with his children or working outside. But thanks to the successful surgery, Chorn will be able to work without difficulty and support his family.
Chorn shared: “After so many years of bad hearing and infections, I feel that I have been given a new life. This will help me support my family financially, as I will be able to work easier. Thank you to all of the donors who helped pay for my surgery and to the staff at the hospital. I am very grateful.”
