SUPPORT OF OTHER NGOS

For Smiling Gecko, cooperating with other organisations is of vital importance, as it gives us access to expertise in the fields in which these specialised charities operate. Through our close contacts, we gain real insight into issues and potential solutions, for instance in the areas of medical services and education.

CSC (CHILDREN SURGICAL CENTRE)

Smiling Gecko works in particularly close cooperation with the CSC (Children Surgical Centre). The CSC was founded by Dr. Jim Gollogly, a British-American surgeon, who first spent time in Cambodia in the 1990s during a six-month stint for the American Red Cross. The Children Surgical Centre started out as a small project intended to help landmine victims, among which many children. Over the years, the centre turned into the NGO we know today. Its objectives are to improve the quality of life for children and adults with handicaps by offering free rehabilitative surgery.

An integral part of its mission is a program that has been devised to train local surgeons and expert medical staff. Today, the CSC can rely on a workforce of 80 Cambodians. Assisted in the background by physicians, nurses, physiotherapists and other staff members, the centre is in a position to offer their patients an extensive range of medical services from surgery and orthopaedics to eye surgery, plastic surgery and surgery for the treatment of burns.

Smiling Gecko provides Dr. Jim with regular assistance by supplying drugs and medical consumables. Smiling Gecko, furthermore, managed to provide 3 tuk-tuks for the transport of invalids as well as three fully functional operating tables for use in Dr. Jim’s clinics thanks to a donation we received.

Apart from its cluster projects, Smiling Gecko also provides direct aid to families living in slums in and around Phnom Penh who need immediate assistance. While such aid does not change their lives in the long-term, it helps alleviate the suffering of those in need to some extent. The aid provided is primarily geared towards improving the living conditions of destitute families. Smiling Gecko helps people struggling to survive in slums and landfills by supplying them with rice and other food, as well as urgently needed health and hygiene products
