Although their standard of living is steadily improving, Cambodians still suffer from endemic poverty. Children should have access to quality medical care wherever they live, regardless of their ability to pay.
Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in Siem Reap provides outpatient, inpatient, intensive, surgical, and HIV care, as well as other services, free of charge. Over 150,000 Cambodian children are cared for every year in the hospital, and this number has been steadily increasing.
Deutsche Bank has been funding the hospital’s Outpatient Department since 2009, supporting personnel costs, training for both medical and non-medical staff, and providing medical supplies and equipment. In 2013, more than 50,000 children benefitted from our support.
In April 2014, the newly expanded and renovated Outpatient Department will officially open its doors to welcome more children in need. As part of Born to Be, Deutsche Bank will continue to fund the Outpatient Department. For more information, please email email@example.com.
More than 200 youths between the ages 15 and 24 attend regular market-linked training workshops where they acquired skills in cooking, motor mechanics, sewing, and more. The non-profit organisation also offers these youths medical care and counselling services.
With support from Deutsche Bank as part of Born to Be, Kaliyan Mith will strengthen their programme and convert two training workshops into social businesses to help generate income and enable them to be self-sustainable.
Kaliyan Mith is part of Friends-International, a leading social enterprise saving lives and building futures for marginalised children and youths in South East Asia. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
