Friends Without A Border (FWAB) was established in 1995 to construct and to operate Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in Cambodia. Since it opened in 1999, AHC has provided free, compassionate medical care to the children in Cambodia. Working closely with Ministry of Health, AHC is recognized as an official teaching hospital and is the largest facility outside of the capital providing anti-retroviral treatment to HIV/AIDS patients.
In 2011, FWAB expanded its impact by supporting The Lake Clinic (TLC), a boat-based health delivery organization which serves the deprived floating village populations on Cambodia's Tonle Sap, Southeast Asia's largest lake.
In 2013, AHC achieved the longstanding goal of becoming independent. While continuing financial support to AHC and TLC, FWAB opened Lao Friends Hospital for Children in Luang Prabang, Lao PDR in 2015, with an aim to replicate the successful model of Treatment + Education + Prevention achieved and proven at AHC in Laos.
