Children´s surgeries

  • Childrens surgeries

    Every year we go with Dr. VUTHY CHHOEURN and a more than twenty-headed surgeons and nurse team for 4 days in a previously selected province, rent parts of a hospital and operate aprox. 50 children and give them a new life.

    In Cambodia, thousands of children with disabilities and Mispositions are born every year, of which ca. 1000 children with cleft lip and CA 500 children with Klappfuß. During the Vietnam War, about Cambodia were 2.5 million tonnes of bombs dropped, while the Khmer Rouge (1975-1979) continued to ca. 5 million landmines buried throughout the country. Many of these mines are still demanding hundreds of victims every year, especially in the rural population. There are also many cases of cleft lip, cancer and other impairments.

    Give a child a new life too! Help us – with your donation!

  • Why we support this project

    We met Dr. Vuthy Chhoeurn and his wife at a presentation of his project in Phnom Penh. Both give everything to help children. Whether in the National Children’s Hospital or at your project to go to the hospitals in the country. In your emotional talk you have documented all the “surgical trips” in detail. These are only financed by private donations and it is not possible to plan when the necessary costs will be available next time. In this project, we can be sure that all donations will arrive directly where they are needed. We will be happy to accompany the next mission in person on site.
