What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Neonatal Program

When Chenla was established in 2016, 1 in 16 children in Kratie province did not survive to their 1st birthday. Since its inception, 1,700 neonates with immediate life threatening conditions have been directly saved. Chenla’s educational and training efforts have undoubtedly saved many more. A disproportionate number of patients are from minority ethnic groups rather than Khmer, Cambodia’s main ethnic group. These marginalized groups have long had much poorer health outcomes and depend on Chenla. Chenla’s plan for neonatal care is threefold:
- Provide high quality, compassionate care to all neonates in need who are delivered at Kratie Provincial Hospital and also who present to Chenla from outlying facilities;
- Provide preventative services in the form of education and training to health centers and outlying health facilities in Kratie;
- Strengthen public facilities in Kratie through the carefully chosen distribution of equipment and supplies urgently needed for neonatal care.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers
People with diseases and illnesses

Chenla's outreach program was established in 2018 to efficiently provide treatment education and prevention in some of our poorest and remote communities. To date, over 40,000 children and families have received our outreach services. Chenla’s outreach activities remain essential for education of the community and increased utilization of Chenla’s resources by those who need them most.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
