Ear clinic

Contaminated water, poor sanitation, lack of awareness about personal hygiene and the absence of easily accessible healthcare all contribute to the growing number of people afflicted with ear infections and diseases in Cambodia. Children commonly play in any open body of water, which is usually not clean, and thus are especially susceptible to ear infections that can easily develop into more serious problems of hearing impairment and, in the worst case, deafness.

JSC runs two ear clinics – one in Phnom Penh and the other in Battambang. These clinics have well- trained professional medical staffs to treat patients, conduct audiology tests for early detection of hearing loss, organize ear surgery in collaboration with surgeons from abroad and offer outreach programs to teach proper ear care to villagers.
