Women’s Health

Women in Cambodia face unique health issues. A lack of resources forces many to go without basic medical care and attention. When resources are available, others are limited in their access to resources. The disparity between care in the capital, Phnom Penh, compared to the provincial regions is tremendous. Finally, cost provides a significant barrier to care in Cambodia as well.

Seeing is Believing is committed to women’s health, and committed to overcoming each of these barriers. This year, we have partnered with Tabitha to help support Nokor Tep, the largest women’s hospital in Cambodia. We have also started programs of our own to close the gap in the disparity throughout the country.

Check out our programs below, and how you can support the health of women throughout Cambodia.

  1. Donation: $65.00 / $100,000.00
    Each year, thousands of women in Cambodia go without basic medical treatment for common health issues. Seeing is Believing is committed to strengthening the health system for women and children in Cambodia. This year, we have partnered with Tabitha to help fund the Nokor Tep Women's Hospital. Nokor Tep will be the largest hospital specific to women's health, with the largest community outreach in Cambodia. Your donations purchase the medical equipment required to fit the hospital.
  2. Donation: $10.00 / $1,500.00
    We've partnered with Surgeons for Cambodia to help advance the surgical education and opportunities in Cambodia. Surgeons for Cambodia is in need of microvascular surgery equipment totaling about $1500.
  3. Donation: $0.00 / $150.00
    CICFO is where it all began. Our first eyeglass distribution at this children's sanctuary in Cambodia inspired us to start Seeing is Believing. In 2017, we will return to CICFO to screen the children and staff and update prescription. About 25 children and staff will require glasses. Contributions to this specific campaign go directly towards screening and eyeglasses for CICFO.
  4. Donation: $0.00 / $5,000.00
    In 2016 we were expanded our programs into Laos. We work with the Mahosot Hospital to screen underprivileged, school-aged children. Every $5 donation purchases a pair of prescription glasses for a child needing eyeglasses. As a volunteer-based organization, 100% of donations go directly towards purchasing eyeglasses.
