Angkor Hospital for Children

In 2013, Children of Cambodia (CoC) opened its neonatology ward at Angkor Hospital for Children, the first of its kind in Cambodia.


CoC is a non-profit organisation dedicated to making healthcare facilities available, affordable and accessible.


The team has embarked on a new program to restore function to children afflicted by burns and other trauma in partnership with Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Singapore General Hospital.

A total of 152,151 children have been treated at Angkor Hospital for Children, as of 2013. 98% of the staff are also Cambodians, ensuring the hospital operates under a sustainable healthcare system.

To address this, AHC established a new paediatric centre in the government-operated Sot Nikum Referral Hospital. This mitigates the need for poor families to incur enormous costs to get to AHC, many miles away.
