Kwai River Christian Hospital (KRCH) is situated in Thailand, in the Western mountainous region of the Thai-Burma border, 18 km from the town of Sangklaburi, in the Province of Kanchanaburi.

KRCH is a 25 bed rural hospital with busy outpatients and inpatients departments and a public health unit, which treats each patient as an individual without bias towards their religion, nationality, race, gender or wealth.

Since its inception in a room of the first Doctor’s house in 1960, the hospital’s aim has been to offer high quality medical care and to present the Gospel to a marginalised, poor and neglected community, in an area where the majority of the population have no nationality or registration papers and are therefore not eligible to use government health services.


The hospital seeks to provide essential and emergency treatment to all, regardless of their ability to pay.

Approximately fifty percent of our patients cannot afford their full medical costs, meaning that the hospital bears those costs. The hospital’s work is funded by a mix of patient fees and donations from other organizations and individuals.

As a non-profit organization, we welcome donations to support the hospital’s work in serving the health needs of the community and sharing the hope and love of the Gospel.
