COMPANY PROFILE

The Lake Clinic is a project dedicated to bringing basic healthcare, as well as disease surveillance and proper medical referrals to a severely isolated and underserved region of Cambodia -- the Tonle Sap.

"In 1994 I journeyed by boat from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap for the first time. This was still during the days of Cambodia’s post-UN civil war -- when each political party had its own army; before the Khmer Rouge were fully pacified, and when both roads and waterways were being closely observed by hungry people with guns.

"It was then that I had my first impression of just some of the floating villages found on the Tonle Sap lake. Within the same photo frame children were defecating into the lake’s water while others swam and some washed the family dishes. Swollen bellies either from malnutrition or worms were evident everywhere. I turned towards my wife and said, 'This is a nightmare'.

"It was thirteen years later when I possessed the experience, skills and access to intellectual assistance that I lacked in 1994 that I was finally in a position to return to the Tonle Sap and bring to those villages some of the health services and education that is so greatly needed."
