Lin is a teenage boy who lives near the border of Cambodia and Vietnam. Lin helps care for his two younger siblings so that his parents can work in a factory far from their family home. Lin likes growing vegetables and spending time with his friends. His goal is to return to school soon.
A few weeks ago, Lin started experiencing ear discomfort, tinnitus, and hearing loss. Medication has not improved his condition. He is not sleeping well and is finding it difficult to communicate.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On March 15th, surgeons at CSC will perform a myringotomy procedure to drain fluid from his ears so he can hear better and no longer experience his uncomfortable symptoms. Now, he needs $184 to help fund his procedure and care.
Lin said he hopes his hearing and sleep can improve after surgery.
