    CWAF is also looking for volunteers in Canada:

    • to source medical and dental supply donations.
    • to assist with events and programs, or our websites.
  • Supply Donations

    CW Asia Fund helps facilitate donations of medical supplies and equipment. If you, or someone you know have access to medical and dental supplies, we would like your help. Please contact us directly for more information on how to donate in this way.

    Angkor Hospital For Children staff works hard to provide a high quality healthcare to its patients and families within its community. This includes providing free of charge treatment and medications where poverty stricken families and caretakers cannot afford to pay. As a Non Government charitable hospital, we depend on the generosity of donations and support of others that enables us to continue to strive to provide such a healthcare service for the children of Cambodia.

    AHC knows that all donations come from caring people who want to help, but sometimes we cannot accept a donation, for one of many possible reasons, usually involving safety, hygiene, or government restrictions. If this is the case with regard to your donation, we would still like you to know how much we appreciate your generosity and efforts.

Two crucial rules we must follow when accepting donated medications and supplies are:
    Medications and supplies must have at least an 18-month expiration date when they arrive in Cambodia. This is a government regulation to which the hospital must adhere, without exception. Where donations are made from within Cambodia, validity and acceptable standard of item will be assess on case by case basis.

    Supplies should be suitable for a pediatric hospital, and all equipment MUST be in good working order. AHC cannot accept equipment that is old, obsolete, or has outlived its expected life span. Generally, if it is not something usable in your situation, it won’t be usable at AHC. The hospital’s ability to maintain and repair old equipment is extremely limited.

  • Travel and Give Back

    We have developed many relationships over the years with social enterprises that support projects and other businesses who have given generously to fund-raising efforts. If you are traveling in SE Asia, consider shopping or staying with these partners. Find out more about these opportunities and the magic of travel in SE Asia by reading about the “Magic of Travel” on our Taste the World website.

    Shop and Eat

    CW Asia Fund encourages you to visit the social enterprises that we support in SE Asia. Enrich your travel experience in Cambodia and Laos by dining and shopping at these dynamic businesses. Your tourist dollars go directly towards training and community economic development programs delivered by local organizations.

    When you choose to dine at a TREE restaurant, you are not only choosing to have a wonderful culinary experience in beautiful surroundings, you are actually choosing to support a young person as they train to build a better future for themselves.

     

    All profits from TREE restaurants are invested in the students who train there and the social programs which support them on their journey to becoming a skilled, productive and happy young person with a more secure future.
