Telemedicine Outreach During COVID

Cambodia has been forgotten. 

The Covid-19 infection is raging inside the country and the border is still closed. Now, the needs for medical care in developing countries are  greater. We are organizing a telemedicine platform so Phoenix International doctors can continue to care for Cambodians even when we can not visit  personally.

Current situation in Cambodia

Cambodia reported very few COVID cases to the WHO; however, according to our friends on the ground, there are increased number of unexplained death from the local hospitals. Due to the inefficient health care system in Cambodia, it is widely believed that there are inadequate testing and under reporting of COVID cases. Cambodia is currently in a lock down, and international NGO are prohibited to enter high infection areas to provide aids.  Many areas are isolated and in desperate need of help. Phoenix International Foundation with your help would like to continues our medical outreach via telemedicine.
