It is with great pleasure that we can announce that Pontarius supports the children’s hospital Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The hospital is a good example where an enthusiast (Kenro Izu) collaborates globally to provide free health care for children in a region where the needs are very high. With energy, will and cooperation we can change the world for the better.
Short about the history of the hospital:
”In 1996 Kenro Izu founded Non-profit organization Friends Without A Border (FWAB). With the help of health care professionals, the art community, and more than 6,000 supporters worldwide, Angkor Hospital for Children opened in 1999. Since its opening, the hospital has expanded while remaining focused on providing quality health care in Cambodia. From opening an Operating Theater in 2002, to being able to provide specialist heart surgery in 2008, AHC has achieved many milestones. Our Satellite Clinic which opened in 2010, further broadened our outreach and in 2011 we marked our millionth Outpatient treatment.”
