We are committed to fostering a network of support and advocacy for all family members who have felt the impact of the opioid crisis. CWC was founded by a mother on a mission. Through our work, we have cultivated partnerships with these momma’s on a mission.
Illness in a family living in impoverished areas can severely disrupt a child’s life and plunge a struggling family even further into debt and poverty, so CCF’s medical clinic was opened in 2009 to provide healthcare to children, families and community members who cannot access medical treatment.
CCF provides Cambodia’s only free to access medical clinic, open to all patients in the Steung Meanchey area of Phnom Penh. In November 2019, the clinic was reopened after a complete renovation made possible thanks to Cammie and John Rice, with contributions from family and friends, who donated funding in memory of their son.
Christopher had visited the medical clinic during a family trip and wanted to help improve the facilities. In recognition of this, the clinic was renamed Christopher’s Hope Medical Clinic. The donation enabled CCF to renovate the clinic, fix up the outside waiting area and buy much needed modern medical equipment including an X-ray and ultrasound machine.
Each day, the clinic sees between 200-250 patients. Over a decade, it has provided more than 300,000 treatments, to young and old. On average, it provides more than 33,000 treatments and consultations to patients every year, a lifeline for those unable to afford even basic healthcare.
