Happy New Year-We just turned 25!

January 2, 2024

It's a New Year 2024, and Children's Surgical Centre has just turned 25! If you haven't kept up with what's going on in Cambodia, we remain a mostly agrarian society - more than half of the labor force is engaged in subsistence farming, and Cambodia remains one of Asia's poorest countries. We have towering skyscrapers in Phnom Penh, but the average Cambodian makes $200-$300 USD/month in thr rual provinces.

CSC is still here to offer free and low-cost surgery in numerous specialties for economically disadvantaged patients. Please visit us and think about financially supporting the work that we do. www.csc.org
