In Siem Reap Angkor in the Hospital Jayavarman VII (Kantha Bopha III) we installed two years ago a Heart Corner. Now every day a heart operation is done. Further every day an invasive heart catheter.
On August 26 again a child suffering from Bird Flu was hospitalized. The 12 month aged child was before hospitalized in a private clinic in Phnom Penh. There the Diagnosis was missed.The child aggravated. But it was the decision by the mother and not by the private clinic’s Doctors to leave the private clinic and to bring the child to Kantha Bopha. As soon the clinical diagnosis was done we sent the samples to Institute Pasteur. There the diagnosis was confirmed. It is the 12th severe case of Bird Flu in Kantha Bopha in 2013. We think we can save it.
All treatment is free for all. 80% of our patients are children from poor families. They could not pay. Their children would die at home.
The day we spend 120 000.00 USD. We hope that more rich Cambodian people will contribute donations to Kantha Bopha. Still 85% of this money is from private donations we have to beg for since 22 years. But I do not know how long we still can do it.
