THE CARE THEY DESERVE
Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital is an initiative launched by Mrs. Ros Priboun; Ms. Janne Ritskes, the founder of Tabitha Cambodia; Dr. Ing Kantha Phavi, the Cambodian Minister for Women’s affairs; and Mr. Trac Thai Sieng, Vice Governor of the city of Phnom Penh.
Officially opened in March, 2019 Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital has begun operating a programme designed to improve the understanding of women’s health issues and facilitate access to treatment that is not usually accessible or affordable for Cambodian women. Healthier and more educated women are critical to ensuring healthy children, strong families and communities, and a stronger Cambodia.
The hospital’s primary objective is to provide quality gynaecological medical care and compassion for any woman who enters into the programme. Payment for treatment starts from a single dollar for the poorest patients to international rates for those who can afford it.
The hospital is located in a large garment factory district on the outskirts of Phnom Penh where more than 200,000 women come to work daily. A membership programme will encourage these young women to get regular women’s wellness checks.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
Funds are needed to continue outfitting the hospital so that it can reach its full potential.
Support a Cambodian woman with an existing gynaecological problem who does not have the means to pay for medical care nor the ability to access it. The treatment package includes an initial consultation, tests, diagnosis and follow-up treatment.
Sponsor a membership to provide wellness checks, treatment and education for one woman for an entire year.
Using solar power both saves in operating costs (over $5000 USD per month) and ensures that the hospital can continue running even when the electrical grid is down (a chronic problem in Cambodia). Please help us harness Cambodia’s bright sunshine and cover our roof with panels at £200 each.
