About the

Nokor Tep Foundation

The Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital is an initiative launched by Mrs. Ros Priboun; Ms. Janne Ritskes, the founder of Tabitha Cambodia; Dr. Ing Kantha Phavi, the Cambodian Minister for Women’s affairs; and Mr. Trac Thai Sieng, Vice Governor of the city of Phnom Penh. Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital was officially registered with the Royal Cambodian Government on 18th July 2011.

The vision for Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital is based on an issue of justice and equity, a vision evolving from a view of basic human rights. In Cambodia, as in many developing countries, women are seen as the least valuable assets of society despite the fact that women are the foundation of homes and society. A direct result of this is that women’s personal health issues are of little concern. This results in immense suffering amongst women here – suffering that is silent – suffering that eventually costs the family dearly and undermines the strength of society.
