Landing in Siem Reap, Cambodia appears very Americanized and modern. Angkor Wat – Unesco World Heritage site, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the main draw and people flock from all corners of the world to experience this amazing historical site. Nested in the jungle around Ankor Wat are various other temple complexes. Tourism enables the area to flourish.
But just beyond the beautiful hotels and restaurants, the countryside tells a different story. Although people are working to improve their conditions as evidenced by more updated houses, the vast majority live in poverty without access to medical resources. A doctor’s visit is cost prohibitive. Most people only go when they are very sick (with relatives funding the visit), and more often than not, a condition that would have been treatable with an early diagnosis is now terminal.
