The Cambodia Kantha Bopha Foundation was officially established in 2018 by the Royal Government of Cambodia under the leadership of Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen to provide medical care and treatment to more Cambodian children.

“This new foundation is to find more and more funds for Kantha Bopha, so now I can tell you honesty that we are sure to go on for next five or ten years with the same policy – free of charge for everybody with high level of treatment,” he said after a meeting with H.E.

Dr. Beat Richner, who passed away four years ago, founded the first Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospital in 1992. In the following 30 years, four more hospitals have been established in Cambodia with more than 2,000 beds in Phnom Penh capital and Siem Reap province.
