Mr. Trac Thai Sieang
Mr. Trac Thai Sieang is the Vice Governor of Phnom Penh.
The uniqueness in our endeavor to build the Nokor Tep Women's Hospital is that for once, we dare to give priority to women, young and old, to state that the future of the humanity also goes through the preservation of women just as we were used to be told as a gentleman before a situation of great danger of a sinking boat: "the women and the children first...
To my grandmother and my mother that I cherish
To my wife and daughter that I love
To all the women that we care for
I want to share with all of you why I am a co-founder of the Nokor Tep Women's Hospital. As a young boy raised in the spirit instilled by grandmother and mother, that has become a man, I have been educated to be protective and caring towards the human beings that we care for and to act in a compassionate way towards the feminine gender. But confronted by sickness, in some situations I do feel inexorably helpless to exercise my strongest will to protect, use my strongest strength to preserve those living souls that we love and care for. In sharing these thoughts I wanted to let you know how much sickness is a powerful influence in a developing country and how much it can threaten the happiness in the daily life of our countrymen.

No matter what the pre-eminent role of the male gender in the society is, women sickness should not be an imparting reason to involve gender prevalence in the society. In building Nokor Tep Women's Hospital, we simply want to express that as a man, as a son, a grandson and a father, we no longer want to be feel helpless before the sickness of our beloved one. We want to have a tool to answer to the silent suffering of our grandmother, of our mother and sisters and daughters. We want to be able answer responsibly to our duty to protect them, to care for them, to love them. We do not want to live with the unbearable feeling of being helpless. For that purpose, we want the best tool that we can build, the best knowledge that we can mobilize, we want the best will that we can rally to make this tool come out. We want to express how much we love our mother and grandmother, how much we care for them, how much we could do for them in our loving memories of them.
Therefore please do join all our efforts to make this women hospital happen, make it an answer to despair, an answer for hope, an answer for the cure instead of the useless condolence, an answer that we can do to sweep away the tears. We want to make sure; we have done the best we can do. This Hospital is the most satisfactory answer a man can do to response to his female counterpart. Let's do it together, Build the Nokor Tep women hospital.
