about us

Our team

Our team has the extensive experience, invaluable practical skills and knowledge needed to serve our community.

Our story

From Harvard to Siem Reap to Kratie, Cambodia. We founded Chenla Children's Healthcare to help those most in need.


Transparency and accountability matter. Here are our financial statements, external assessments and more.

What we do

Chenla Children’s Healthcare works within the pediatric wards of the Cambodian government referral hospitals to greatly strengthen the government system’s ability to provide compassionate, high-quality care.

Currently fully operational in Kratie and Mondulkiri Provinces, we seek to replicate to further areas where the needs are greatest.

We utilize existing government facilities, medication, supplies, and staff to provide international-standard medical care to children suffering from infectious disease, febrile illness, premature birth, and more.

Strengthening the social contract between the local community and the public healthcare system forms the foundation of what we do. We provide all services free of charge for poor patients and their families.
