It is not unusual for Cambodians to become seriously ill or die from medical conditions that are normally easily dealt with in developed countries.
Our students face disease and illness due to malnutrition, poor hygiene, unclean environments, poor quality drinking water and mosquito borne diseases. Compounding the problem is the fact that poor families simply cannot afford the costs associated with quality health care.
At our Helen Bonner Health Centre our students and staff have daily access to a trained nurse, who can provide health information, assess any health issues and either treat minor issues or refer the patient to a local hospital or health clinic.
Thanks to your donations, the Helen Bonner Health Centre is kept well supplied and staffed daily.
