CamKids at the Children's Surgical Centre (CSC)

During a recent trip to Cambodia, CamKids Trustees Benita and Amber visited the Children's Surgical Centre (CSC) in Phnom Penh. The CSC provides a wide range of surgery, encompassing facial reconstruction, orthopaedic surgery, eye surgery, and plastic and burn surgery.

The CSC provide surgeries and procedures for children and adults free of charge and relies on support from NGOs, individuals, organisations and grants to keep running. Some of these complex surgeries are currently unavailable in the rest of Cambodia. If it were not for the CSC, people would need to travel to neighbouring Singapore or Thailand to receive the same operations, which a majority of the population would never be able to afford. CSC are saving and changing lives.

Our Trustees were overwhelmed by the dedication of the team behind the CSC and the high level of expertise and care provided by the medical staff. CamKids are proud to have now made a substantial financial contribution to the running costs of the hospital. This is thanks to our generous donors, friends and supporters - thank you for giving us the chance to help extraordinary places like the CSC. CamKids are privileged to be associated with this incredible hospital. For more information about their work, you can visit the CSC website
