Our Mission

At Friends Without A Border, we believe every child has the right to a healthy and loving life. We accomplish this by providing high-quality and compassionate medical care to the children of Southeast Asia; by creating community health education programs; and by training local healthcare professionals.


Friends is extending the mission of high-quality and compassionate health care to the children of Laos. Working with the Health Department and Luang Prabang Provincial Hospital (LPPH), Friends will help to build and operate Lao Friends Hospital for Children, slated to open in the spring of 2015.

In 1999, Friends opened Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap, Cambodia which has since treated over 1.3 million children with high-quality and compasionate care. AHC offers outpatient, inpatient, emergency, surgical, dental and ophthalmologic care to more than 450 girls and boys each day, and is now a self-sustained hospital. LEARN MORE
