The World Mate Emergency Hospital is managed by The Handa Foundation but receives most of its charitable support from the generous people of Japan through an organization called the World Mate Foundation. Dr. Haruhisa Handa currently serves as the Honorary Chairman of the World Mate Foundation and the Honorary Director of the World Mate Emergency Hospital. This 109-bed trauma hospital has played a pivotal role in the recovery of NW Cambodia from the devastation of war. Since it opened in 1998, it has treated approximately half of all the land mine survivors in the country, completely free of charge.
