Nokor Tep - March 2018

Dear friends and partners,​​

A few weeks ago we had a house building team of women come and visit the hospital. The visit was one of sharing ideas and admiring the progress. There was one theme that several women kept bringing up – tell us what you need now! We want to know what you need now!

This March is also the Lenten season – a season of preparation for Easter – Easter is the season of grace – of hope – a time for reflection and anticipation.
So I am combining a list of things we need right now as we continue to move towards the completion of the hospital building in anticipation of hope and grace for the women of Cambodia this Easter season.

We need windows – lots of windows – 387 windows to be exact – the cost is $30 USD each- windows that bring in light and cheer for women who are in despair.

We need doors – lots of doors – 639 doors to be exact – the cost is $50 USD each – doors that will open and welcome yet grant privacy and safety to women who need both.

We need paint – lots of paint – 25 kilo cans - 350 cans – the cost is $145 USD per can- each floor a soft pastel color to bring warmth and cheer to women who are hurting.

We need toilets – lots of toilets – 232 to be exact – at $100 US per toilet – that will bring comfort and cleanliness to women who struggle each day for both.

We need atriums – 2 of them – 1 small over the entrance –at $2500 for the small one – and $25000 USD for the large one.  Steel and glass to reflect the light and grace  our women deserve.

This Lenten and Easter season perhaps many of you will be able to buy a window or door or paint or maybe even an atrium cover. AS the walls continue to go up, plumbing and electricity begun – as the vision moves towards reality – I present each of you with our needs.

I thank my God – for this Lenten season – for Easter – for each of you who stand with us in this journey of Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital – how good that is! Thank you and Happy Easter,
