Generous doctor helps sick children

A doctor and a little girl sit together laughing, clearly happy, in a photo that’s has gained around 2,000 likes and 300 shares on Facebook.

The photo, posted by I Love Cambodia Hot News II, with the phrase, “The imagination of a peaceful world”, aims to inspire people to make a better world. According to the comments, the generous doctor’s name is Dr Beat Richner.

In the comments, Kry Maranith wrote, “What a rarity, a charitable person. Thank you very much.”

Sokkun Lim commented, “He helped my niece’s life”, while Sovana Phum wrote, “They have followed this action and donated. Have you ever participated with him yet?”

Some comments directed criticism towards Cambodia. “No Cambodian is like him. Khmer is selfish,” wrote So Phat. While Van Vuth poses the question: “Who in the Cambodian elite, tycoons and millionaires, act like him? In Cambodia, there is only a people dead with their money.”

Chansaly Kim suggested, “Donate one dollar each, please.”

“Foreigners can help Khmer, so Cambodians should not wait. Let’s together develop our society toward the better and peaceful country,” wrote Happy SP.

Seeing the smiling face of the girl and the doctor should motivate us all to contribute money to the hospital to help the children. Big or small, a donation will help children smile and continue to live.
