Nokor Tep Women's Hospital

April 4, 2013

Dear friends and partners,

On April 17 we commemorate the end of the indiscriminate bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam War and the beginning of a horrific era of unimaginable genocide and isolation committed by the infamous Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. The suffering and total destruction of Cambodia was a 30 year long life span which did not end until 1998.

Today – this April in 2013 we are celebrating a new beginning - and we are celebrating worldwide. We are celebrating the beginning of the construction of Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital – 400 pilings have been completed – another 800 to go. It is a celebration of all the women in Cambodia –for whom 85%  do not have even the basic access to health care – women whom by the time they are 14 are suffering discharges and pain that bring shame and fear into their lives – who die too young and spend their adult lives wondering why.  It is time to stop that horrible suffering.

 How are we celebrating – with one of the most exciting campaigns in my life time and work.

One Million People - $10 each

How can we achieve this celebration – simply by asking each and every one of you to tap on this link and make a choice to join us.

But I need even more than that from each of you – I ask that you share this with family and friends and neighbors, I ask that you share this with your fellow work mates, your fellow church goers, your teammates, your school mates – with any and all who would listen – ask them to read about Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital – a link on bottom right hand corner – and ask them to consider being part of the 1 in a Million. Don’t take that choice away from them – let them decide for themselves.

In two years the hospital will be complete and on the wall in the entrance there will be a sign - and that sign will read:

“Welcome my sister, my daughter, my mother, my wife – do not be afraid for we ( 1 Million People) are with you. Come – we welcome you, we will comfort you and treat you.  You are not alone – we are with you.”

A celebration of life, of compassion, of love and understanding – I invite you all to stand with us and with the women of Cambodia. I thank my God for this gift of life He has given me – I thank Him for each of you and the 1 in a Million Campaign.

Send us a picture of you or your family, or your group – tell us your name and where you are from so that we can celebrate the wide diversity and goodness of our universal community.
