We currently have a tremendous opportunity to save lives and to strengthen the public sector’s role in providing high quality pediatric health services where it is needed most in Cambodia.

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 is a pediatric hospital located inside of Kratie Provincial Hospital, a government-run facility in eastern Cambodia.

Utilizing existing resources including medications, supplies, and staff while building upon these through Chenla’s International NGO structure, Chenla provides international-standard medical care to Cambodian children suffering from infectious disease, febrile illness, premature birth, and more.

Strengthening the social contract between the local community and the public healthcare system is central to what we do. All services are free for patients and families who are poor.

Bringing Compassionate Care Closer to Babies in Need

Kratie’s neighboring province of Mondulkiri is one of the poorest in the country and has the highest child mortality rate. The population is primarily made up of ethnic minorities who face socio-economic problems related to low education levels and remoteness. The villages continue to have high levels of malnutrition and stunting due to societal challenges and food insecurity.

Chenla has been given an incredible opportunity to open a much needed neonatal ward at the Mondulkiri Provincial Hospital to bring high-quality care closer to those with the greatest need. We have begun renovating the ward and will begin basic operations later this year. Read more news.
