Keth is a 38-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. Her husband is also a rice farmer, and they have two sons: a twelve-year-old boy in 6th grade and a five-year-old boy who is not in school just yet. Keth’s free time is spent keeping her house clean, cooking for her family, and helping her children with homework.
Eight months ago, a mass appeared on the right side of Keth’s neck. It did not bother her until it became very itchy. Keth could not afford to visit a hospital and saw a Khmer healer for assistance. The mass has continued to grow and has become infected, causing her to experience irritation, feel sick, and have difficulty farming or caring for her family.
Keth traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 14th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will remove the mass. Now, Keth needs help to raise $273 to fund this procedure. Keth contributed $80 to her care.
Keth said: “I hope the doctors can remove this mass, and it will not be infected anymore.”
