During a series of photography trips to Cambodia's Angkor Wat monuments, internationally acclaimed photographer Kenro Izu was deeply affected by his encounters with often ill, malnournished, and disfigured children. As a symbol of his gratitude for the profound artistic inspiration he received from Cambodia's historical treasures, Izu committed himself to building a pediatric hospital to provide desperately needed healthcare for its children...its future.
Friends Without A Border (Friends), a non-profit organization, was founded by Izu in 1996 to manage the project. With the help of an international board of healthcare professionals, the art community, and over 5,000 supporters worldwide, Friends opened Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in 1999.
