Health Program

Preserving health and saving the lives of parents is fundamental to conserving the families and cultures in the ancient community of Angkor Wat.

In memory of his late wife, Helen, Queensland Pharmacist Chris Bonner contributed significant funds to enable Sunrise New Hope to relocate and expand their one-room medical facility to a large twelve room premises.

The Sunrise New Hope medical team performs approximately 1,200 consultations a month. All medicinal costs are covered by Sunrise New Hope.

The Centre accompanies patients to major Hospitals in Phnom Penh for surgeries, providing transport, family accommodation and support.

We are accepting of all medical donations but please note that it is preferable if all donations remain within the used by or expiry dates. We are grateful for donations but when expired and unusable items are sent it simply creates waste, which we need to pay to dispose of.
