In 2008, Press-Telegram writer Greg Mellen and I traveled to Cambodia with the Long Beach-based nonprofit Hearts Without Boundaries to chronicle in pictures, video and words the journey of Davik Teng, the nonprofit’s first patient, from her rural home to the U.S. for life-extending open-heart surgery. Since then, several other children have also made similar journeys.
Earlier this year, Mellen and I returned to Cambodia to check on the children and their new lives.
Above is a multimedia piece about Davik Teng three years after she returned to Camobida.
