The ARRT Society is proud, that it’s inaugural event raised over $10,000 for Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC). Two of the ARRT Society’s trustees have visited the hospital and all the trustees have met and maintain an active dialogue with the managing director, senior medical staff and trustees of the hospital.
AHC is the largest children’s hospital in Cambodia. The hospital treats 150,000+ children a year and provides a full range of paediatric medical care - including open heart surgery. All healthcare is free to all. Despite it's scale and offering, AHC's budget is only US$6 million/year (£4m) and is funded entirely by charitable donations. Therefore, all donations really make an impact. To put Cambodia in context: 6 million people live on less than USD1.25/day. 29% of Cambodians under five are stunted by malnutrition. 87% have no access to basic healthcare. The need is great.
