The Sonja Kill Memorial Hospital for Children in Kampot province

The Sonja Kill Memorial Hospital for Children is located in a rural area around 5 kilometres west of Kampot, a small town situated on the coast in the south of Cambodia, 150 km away from Phnom Penh.



The province of Kampot is one of the least developed areas in Cambodia since it neither plays an important role for industry nor for tourism. The population survives mainly from agriculture and from fishing. 44,9 percent of the population are under 15 years of age.

Through the intervention of King Norodom Sihanouk the Cambodian government provided the land free of charge to Sonja Kill Foundation in order to build the hospital.

Really a great project run by this foundation, to help and support the cambodian children in this province.
