The Angkor Hospital for Children angkorhospital.org in Siem Riep, Cambodia has a department of congenital heart surgery, however, such surgery is only performed when backed up by a team from a foreign country.
Operative volume is therefore limited to a few months of the year : too little, considering a waiting list of 1,500 children born with congenital heart defects.

By request of the Angkor Hospital for Children, EurAsia Heart undertook a first mission to evaluate local conditions and requirements, and to assess the possibility of longer-term cooperation guided by the principle of help to self-help.

During this very first mission, from 3. to 8. August 2014, a total of twelve children were operated on for VSD, av-canal defects or tetralogy of Fallot. In addition, a large number of children were echocardiographically evaluated.

This first mission was so successful that a longer-term cooperation was agreed upon.

With regard to future work together some local modifications will be undertaken to uphold the guiding principle of EurAsia Heart Foundation, which is the training and ongoing education of on the spot teams.
