Mobile Children Surgery 2016 in Cambodia
Following our successful fundraising campaign for the mobile children’s surgery, we want to continue this project in 2016 in the Oddar Meanchey Province and thus enable many more children a new life.
Please help us this time!
Thousands of children are born each year in Cambodia with disabilities and bad positions, of which about 1,000 children with cleft lip and about 500 children with kickstand. During the Vietnam War about 2.5 million tons of bombs were dropped on Cambodia during Khmer Rouge (1975-1979) continued to be about 5 million landmines buried, which are distributed throughout the country. Many of these mines still call every year hundreds of victims, especially in the rural population.
The team led by DR. Vuthy CHHOEURN the National Pediatric Hospital in Phnom Penh and supplies treated affected children free. However, a majority of children live in rural areas. The children are usually hidden from their relatives and for their parents it is not possible to pay for the transport to Phnom Penh and to leave their house for this time alone. Annually travels DR. Vuthy CHHOEURN with a 20-member medical team for 4 days in a preselected Province, rent parts of a hospital and operate on 60 patients and give them so a new life.
Also you give a new life! Help us – with your donation!
What is treated and / or surgery?
- Cleft lip
- Tumors / adhesions
- Tilt feet / misaligned
- Violations of mine victims
- Other operations as needed.
How much does cost a 4-day mission?
The total amount for transport, material support staff, rent of the hospital and board amounted to approximately 5,000 USD (3,750 EUR) for about 60 operations!
These are Ø 62.50 EUR per operation and new life!
Why do we support this project.
We have Dr. Vuthy Chhoeurn and his wife during a presentation of his project in Phnom Penh met. Both give everything to help children. Whether driving in the National Children’s Hospital or in your project in the hospitals in the country. In your emotional lecture they have documented all “Operations Travel” to the last detail. This can only be financed by private donations and it is not planned, when the necessary costs are available the next time. In this project, we can be sure that all donations directly arrive where they are needed. We are happy to accompany the next mission in person on site.
