This Monday saw the official opening of our brand new Outpatient Department (OPD). It was the culmination of months of hard work by the team at AHC, in collaboration with an amazing group of donors.

Through the generosity and kindness of Maria Fong, Michael and Jo Ann Avery, Dr. Marvin Godner, Jerudong International School and Jurong Consultants in Singapore, the children treated at AHC now have a bigger and more functional Outpatient Department.

The event was attended by their excellencies Government Health Minister Mam Bun Heng, Deputy Governor of Siem Reap Sang Riha and over 100 local school children. And after a traditional monk’s blessing and speeches, donors, AHC staff and invited guests were given a tour of the new facility.

Dr. Ngoun Chan Pheaktra, Deputy Executive Director said, “The new design of AHC’s new OPD is much better than what we were working with before. It will allow for more patients to be seen and equally important, more education and training can occur too. And as Cambodia develops, education is the most key component”
