March 2019

Dear friends and partners,


It has been an amazing month – we had our soft opening of the Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital – a time of 3 days of celebration and recognition that our purpose for existence has begun. We had two wonderful days of blessing ceremonies – an opportunity to dedicate ourselves and the hospital to a much higher authority than ourselves. How good that is!


In the midst of the ceremonies – the electricity would go off –a much needed reminder that solar energy is the way to go. In the midst of our celebrations we were reminded of what and whom we are – a plea from a sister for a sister accompanied by a picture of a horribly diseased breast – we are not yet ready to help as we need some much needed equipment. At the end of the celebrations we discussed our role as a teaching hospital – teaching newly graduated young people how to serve in gynecology; radiology; oncology – and so much more.

We talked about our self sustainability – how we can serve better with the resources from within Cambodia augmented with resources outside Cambodia – fully recognizing that our strength must come from within.

So our new phase begins – and new plans initiated. With these plans come ideas for financial sustainability.

First off please see the list of essential equipments needed for phase 1 and 2 – if a line is colored it means someone has donated funds for this item – if you would like to donate an item send us an email – and when your donation arrives we are able to purchase this item.

Our second outreach is for memberships for women who are unable to meet the membership fee- women who have tried hard but are unable to find appropriate help – our goal this first year is 10,000 members at $60 USD each - perhaps this is something you would like to help with.

Our third outreach is fundraising itself – a way to insure that our running needs are met for the following year – so here is the challenge – I challenge you to join me – over the next 6 months I am determined to walk, run, bike or swim 100,000 kilometers  for $10 USD per kilometer. Of course you know I can’t do this all by myself -If you would walk, run, swim or bike some of these sponsored kilometers – then I can walk, run, bike or swim  less  - help us to achieve this goal but do so by enjoying with family and friends – send me am email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. – and let’s make this happen.  I do believe in miracles and pray this spreads like a disease.

We are down to 999,990 km thanks to Glen Streten who sponsored me for ten kilometers walking – I did it on the beach in Sihanoukville! Send me your photos so I can post it!


I believe in miracles – all of you and us have achieved is a miracle – and the miracles continue – I thank my God for each of you – I thank my God for miracles – how good is that!!
