Friday, 17th- November-2017: Hugs as in “sharing”. As in “awareness”. As in “caring for the next generations”. As in “maternity”. As in “teddy bear”. This coming November, Singapore-based artist Victor Ang has exhibited artwork specially created for a major fundraiser to benefit Khanta Bopha Children’s Hospital, where young patients are treated free of charge. “We are never too old to hold on our teddy bear”, he says with a smile. The teddy is also a metaphor for warmth, compassion and community involvement. Proceeds of the sales will mostly help fund an extension to the Jayavarman VII Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospital in Siem Reap. Over the last 24 years, the medical and humanitarian institution founded by Dr Beat Richner, in six paediatric hospitals and maternity wards in Cambodia, has treated 14,837,155 outpatients, ensured 1,516,471 hospitalisations, and performed 1,390,323 pregnancy controls and 192,897 baby deliveries.
