Siem Reap Eye Hospital

Here are some images of the hospital, its dedicated staff and some of the patients who are benefiting from the work of the Foundation:

    It’s great to see the Australian Government supporting The Fred Hollows Foundation in Cambodia. I was there in January with Caritas Australia visiting local partners and NGOs. It was quite confronting seeing children with disabilities without access to basic medical care.

    I am so glad you are keeping up with your blog even though you are now a very busy Foreign Minister. I’m also glad you are the Minister for Foreign Affairs!
