Chenla works to save lives while creating lasting change in the public sector’s ability to provide high-quality pediatric health services in Cambodia.

about us

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

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.

Utilizing existing government facilities, medication, supplies, and staff, combined with Chenla’s NGO resources, we provide compassionate international-standard medical care to children suffering from infectious disease, febrile illness, premature birth, and a broad range of other pediatric diseases.

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.

Currently working in Kratie, Mondulkiri, and Stung Treng, we seek to replicate to further areas where the needs are greatest.
