A gift of life for Anthony Chhim: How Can You Help?




As you have heard, my thirtyone-year-old son Anthony Achariya, who wants to live a normal life and runs a successful video game company, needs a new kidney. 

The kidney that was given by his mother has stopped functioning since the end of 2015. Up to now Anthony has spent three days a week at the dialysis center for treatment. Anthony has many challenges; nevertheless, he fights to remain strong. He seldom complains and I know how much he is willing fight on. This is one of the reasons why I, as a father, will do anything within my ability by legal to help find a donor to save him.

In response to my call for action through social media and through personal contacts, some of you ask, “How can I help?” First, my family and I are overwhelmed with joy by the caring and positive responses from friends, acquaintances, and strangers alike. We are indeed grateful for your compassion, love and support.

How Can You Help?

If you have an O blood type, regardless if it is negative or positive and regardless of where you are, please consider.  If you would like to find out what blood group you belong to or if you know your blood type and wish to donate, please contact me, Timothy S. Chhim, at 845-642-3232 or email me at timothychhim@aol.com.  You can also contact me via Facebook messenger. I will arrange with our coordinator to start the kidney transplant process.

You can also help by sharing this call for action on “Kidney for Anthony Chhim” with your friends, families, and neighbors. If would like to financially contribute you can donate any amount toward Anthony's kidney fund though my Paypal account at timothychhim@aol.com, or simply contact me.


Thank you very much. May God bless you!


*Please note that transplant operation must be done here in the United States through proper channels and by legal means.

URGENT: A RACE AGAINST TIME FOR MY SON ANTHONY CHHIM, PLEASE HELP.




I was supposed to either die from execution, starvation, disease or overwork, like millions of other Cambodians during the Khmer Rouge era. I believed my life was spared for a specific reason—that I had a definite purpose to help others to succeed and save their lives. I have had faith and believe in this purpose for forty years, from the time I decided to escape the death rows of those failed leaders of the Khmer Rouge who were responsible for the murders of their own citizens. I survived the killing fields.
I escaped to Thailand where I met my wife Neang and immigrated to America where we formed a family and lived a successful American life.
Unfortunately, the universe has thrown me another curve. My surviving days in Cambodia and Thailand have paled in comparison to what I am going through in seeing my only son suffers day in and day out.
My wife Neang and I have three children: two older daughters and one youngest son. Our two daughters are happily married, have great jobs, and have beautiful families of their own. Devastatingly, our thirty-year-old son Anthony (Tony) cannot live a normal life like his sisters. He barely has enough strength to get up and get himself to do routine things.
Over five years ago, for unknown reasons, all of Anthony's kidneys failed. They were not healthy enough for his doctor to perform a biopsy and if they tried, his life would be in grave danger. The doctor told us he needed a kidney transplant. Right away, his sisters, his mother and I had our blood tested. No one else was a match, except for his mother. She has his blood type, O.
Due to our bond as parents—that we would sacrifice ourselves for our children—without a thought Neang gave our only son one of her kidneys. It saved Tony’s life in 2010, but the kidney lasted for only five years with much complications.
His body has been fighting and rejecting it. He lives with constant chronic and severe pains.
Now, he has been on dialysis three days a week, some eight hours each of those days. If he could not drive himself to the hospital or dialysis Center, his older sister or I would take him.
Tony’s condition is getting worse with each passing day. In April of 2016, his mother and I went to Cambodia in desperate hope we could reach out to our immediate families and relatives to help save our son’s life. Sadly, so far, nothing came of it. Meanwhile, Tony is still on a waiting list for a kidney donor here in New York. He’s getting weaker every day. The pain on his face and his struggle to move about stabbed every inch of my heart as well as Neang's. As parents, we want to protect all of our children from pain and suffering. In addition to praying every day, the only thing I could do now is desperately calling out and pleading friends, families, relatives, and strangers to please help save Anthony. 
If you would like to help, whether by donating a kidney or providing financial assistance, please contact Mr. Timothy Chhim at 845-642-3232 or email him at TimothyChhim@aol.com. 
Thank you! And God Bless You.

The Progress: Spok Reach Water Tower Project

The Progress


The water tank is up, the filtering system is up.... in just a few more steps clean water will be available for hundreds of people in the village of Spok Reach. Change the quality of water, so we can change of the quality of life. You can still help...https://www.gofundme.com/25jzyphc

Something that is so small yet have a huge impact to people's lives and the quality of their life.
You may think your small contribution does not make a difference, but the combined generosity can make a great difference between life and death. We could not save the 12 month-old baby in this village who died because of the drought and heatwave, but many more children as well as many adults in this community will be saved from lack of water in the future. And their quality of life will be better because we can help provide better quality of water-- for it is " the basis of the fluids of living organisms." Without water, I will leave it to your imagination. Please help contribute to a great cause.































































"Silence is not necessarily golden"































They are building the water tower stand and platform to support a water tank and filtering system. Many wood columns are needed to support the concrete platform.
