Paediatric Care in Siem Reap
ADMCF began funding Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in 2009 to cover an immediate shortfall and quickly accelerated our work with the team after seeing how vital they were to local pediatric health.
Two years later, we supported the transition of the AHC leadership and board of directors from the USA to Hong Kong in an effort to achieve more direct and Asian support for the hospital. Subsequently, with partners ADMCF funded a new hospital wing, provided core operational support to AHC, helped set up a Fundraising Committee in Hong Kong and to build the UK AHC board.
AHC currently sees around 500 children per day and there currently are 370 medical staff, most of whom are Cambodian. Since 1999, AHC has provided over 2.2 million treatments, education to thousands of health care workers and illness prevention training to thousands of families. AHC works with the Cambodian Ministry of Health to strengthen Cambodia’s healthcare system through the training of doctors, nurses and health workers, and thus plays a central role in improving public health for all Cambodian children.
