Rotary Club of Phnom Penh provides help in the areas of health, education and community development.
This includes our project to help people suffering with meningoencephalocoele. This project has already helped over 70 patients, mostly children, but desperately needs more funding to continue. There are over 1,000 patients still waiting treatment for this life-threatening brain swelling condition.
Rotary is a worldwide community service organization with over 1.2 million members, working in over 200 countries.

Our newest project involves providing books for classroom libraries, aiming particularly at the 5-to-10 year old age group.
The kits are female hygiene/ sanitary kits. No disposable pads, these are completely reusable. Use them, wash them and hang out to dry.
The unexpected happens every day in Cambodia; floods, a fire that burnt down an entire block of building leaving Khmer people out in the rain.
Without mobility a disabled child stays at home, lying around on the floor. They can’t attend school, go to parties, and social gathering that normal children take for granted.
Malaria and dengue fever are prevalent in many parts of Cambodia, and the distribution of mosquito nets can prevent disease and save lives.
MEC (meningoencephalocele) is rare a birth defect found in remote villages in Cambodia. At birth the skull fails to close which causes the child’s brain to herniate through the opening near the bridge of the nose.

We work in partnership with the Children’s Surgical Centre in Phnom Penh, which has its own resident surgeons who now conduct most of the surgeries (supplemented by a team of French doctors who come twice a year). We have hired a Cambodian coordinator, who conducts outreach trips to find patients and organizes their travel to Phnom Penh for the surgery.
In partnership with:
The total cost for outreach, travel, surgery and follow-up is $950 per patient. Funding has come from Rotaries in Asia, Europe, and North America. Each $950 dollars funds one patient.
