Sothea Nhem


I am a healthcare practitioner, professor, and Program Director in the field of Diagnostic Medical Sonography specializing in Pediatric Cardiology at the University of Chicago Medicine. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always cared for and helped others in need. This passion led me to a career in healthcare and education, caring for the sick and helping people succeed in life through education.

For the first time after 36 years growing up the US, I wanted to visit my homeland of Cambodia. That trip changed my life when I saw how families were struggling daily to live with no food, no clean water, and children begging on the streets. I wanted to share with those struggling, the things I had abundantly in this life. I realized that the knowledge and skills I learned in life, I would later use to help others.

When I came across KHK Foundation, I was captured by all their heartfelt work in providing clean water and education to impoverished communities. I now work alongside KHK Foundation; sharing in their passion, vision, goals and objectives. And I feel blessed to be a part of an amazing team of volunteers, sharing the journey in helping struggling families around the world have a chance at a better life.
