Angkor Hospital for Children

Booklet of "Friend without a border", I found it at one of a restaurant

There is a hospital in Siem Reap named "Angkor Hospital for Children". This hospital was established in 1999 by Japanese NPO Friend without a border JAPAN ( Friends USA ). It located on the way to the ruins area from Siem Reap town, so you often passed it through.

When we passed it through, a taxi driver said "This is a children hospital". At that time, I didn't know about it, but the driver teach me the hospital was established by Japanese. I also found a booklet of the hospital at some restaurant in the town, then I learned a detail, that Mr. Izu Kenro, he is a photographer, established NPO and the hospital.

When you come to a front of the hospital, you can always find many motor bikes and people. From the driver's talk, I felt his thanks and proud.

I'm just a tourist visited Cambodia to see Angkor, but I want to do something for Cambodia, then I give a donation to Friend without a border JAPAN.

I got a newsletter from FWAB. It has a list of a person who donated from January to August 2008. I found my name on it. The person's name is also on a name plates at an entrance of Angkor Hospital for Children.
