10 years ago, SBSI and an emergency team from Khmer Soviet Friendship Hospital transported a Japanese patient from home to the Phnom Penh airport, in corporation with a Japanese private emergency service “Lieben”.
This is a photo of an emergency team from the Calmette Hospital and their Japanese ambulance at the site of a collapsed building.
The accident happened on June 22, 2019 in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, caused 28 deaths and many were injured. The ambulance was donated by SBSI, which has donated many emergency vehicles to Cambodia since 1997.
Side by Side International annual report has been published (from August 2019 to April 2020).
We are appreciated to your warm support and continue to do our activities for emergency medical care in Cambodia.
(sorry the report is only Japanese version)
SBSI donated 25 boxes of disposal diapers to Graphis Health Center in Sihanoukville province where Saya and her daughter Sreypich are staying.
Saya was paralyzed from a serious traffic accident when she was a pregnant.
With support from Japan and Khmer doctors, she delivered Sreypich at Calmette Hospital.
Sreypich is almost eight year-old now. Since expenditure for disposal diapers costs a lot, they were grateful and sent their photos.
On April 3rd, a Japanese ambulance (donated by Tokai University), some medical equipment for Calmette Hospital and other items sent by SBSI from Japan arrived in Phnom Penh!!
ACT, ONE shipping company, and Kankyo Oendan(Tokyo), thank you for your warm cooperation in Japan.
And Big thank you to Calmette Hospital staff who did clearance work and unloading under the hot sun!!
( Some medical equipment for Japan Heart were delivered also.)
