Friends Without A Border provides high-quality and compassionate medical care to the children of Southeast Asia. Through the model of "Treatment + Education + Prevention," we build, operate, and fund locally-sustainable hospitals in Cambodia and Laos. Our fully-functional hospital departments treat the various needs of ill children, while our Health Education and Outreach programs educate local staff and local villages in order to prevent future illness or disease.
Provide high-quality medical care for children in a warm, supportive environment.
Support and provide continuing education of healthcare professionals throughout Cambodia and in other countries so that they will become the clinicians and educators of the future.
Improve the health, nutrition, and hygiene of local communities through outreach programs and homecare.
We built and established Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in Siem Reap, Cambodia. AHC has treated more than 1,000,000 children since 1999 and become the essential pediatric teaching hospital in the country.
Friends Without A Border also supports innovative boat-based medical care for the dispossessed floating villages on the Tonle Sap, Southeast Asia's largest lake.
In 2013, Friends has launched a new initiative to build Lao Friends Hospital for Children in partnership with Luang Prabang Provincial Health Department. Opened in February 2015, LFHC is a teaching hospital and serves as the pediatric wing of Luang Prabang Provincial Hospital.
