Dr. Winfried and Mrs. Rosemarie Kill’s dream was to honor the memory of their daughter Sonja, who had been taken from them too soon in an accident. In doing so, they founded the Sonja Kill Foundation with the intent to help the Cambodian people receive quality health care.
Due to the high mortality rate of children in southern Cambodia, the Kill family's vision was for the hospital to focus on the health of children. With this vision in mind, the Sonja Kill Memorial Hospital was built in the southern province of Kampot.
Members of the Kill family visit the hospital regularly to see their dream become a reality.
From the Sonja Kill Foundation German, Sonja Kill Foundation Cambodia and HOPEworldwide are a compassionate and committed group of individuals who believe in the mission of the Sonja Kill Memorial Hospital. They are dedicated to improving the health situations of poor Cambodian mothers and children.
