By Yeh ID Staff | December 3rd, 2013 Every holiday season, Yeh Ideology donates to a charitable cause. This year, we have chosen Friends Without A Border (Friends). We came across Friends through Lauren, a YehID staffer who has volunteered in the past and fell in love with the cause and the team running it.
“Founded in 1996 by world-renowned photographer Kenro Izu, Friends Without A Border (Friends) is an international nongovernmental organization (NGO) that is committed to providing high-quality and compassionate healthcare to children in Southeast Asia.”
In 1999, Friends founded the Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Friends’ model is treatment + education + prevention. The success of this model has led the hospital to reach its goal of becoming self-sufficient. The next endeavor for Friends is the Lao Friends Hospital for Children slated to open in 2015.
We are so excited for Friends’ next step and we are proud to support an organization so dedicated to providing healthcare and education that is sustained even after they leave.
We have only given you a snapshot of what they have been up to but it is well worth checking out their website for more information!
