The Beatocello Concert is well-advertised in town. I attended on two consecutive Saturdays at 7:15 in the evening, as Dr. Beat was in Switzerland on one evening but we were still able to view one of his films on the work being done at Bopha Hospitals. I enjoyed the experience very much and felt that it was important to know... More

Sometimes you have to take some time to respect an appreciate the great work that some people do in this world. This is one of those causes and I recommend this to anyone who would like to make a difference in Cambodia.Just to go and make a small donation is important and it is also important to spread the word...

The music they did play was great, but for most of it, about an hour, it was just people talking about the charity and trying to get money from you.. so I found it kinda boring. Plus the AC was blasting so it was super cold!!

Everywhere it's written concert on Thursdays and Saturdays. You think it seems nice. BUT.... First you arrive in a frozen room (and I'm not exagerating, make sure you get a jacket if you don't want to get a cold). Then you are stucked in there for 2 hours ... which would not be a problem if the concert would be... More

Beato is the Cellist and doctor behind the free hospitals in Cambodia. He has kept them going with 85% private donations. They served tens of thousands of Cambodian children each year and the service is totally free. Not often do you meet a man who is personally responsible for a project which has saved the lives of 10,000+ Cambodian children... More

This is a great cause, and Dr Richter has done amazing work. Unfortunately, he was not in Cambodia for the Saturday concert (which is fine, except that they should have let us know earlier, so that people didn't come expecting the concert) and instead showed a documentary on the hospital and its work. A good documentary, that helped to show... More

Great to see a pediatrician playing the cello. What really grabbed my attention was the health situation in Cambodia, specially that of children

Dr. Beat Richer will enlighten you to the plight of Cambodian children and the countries recent history which he has observed first hand. With musical interludes by Dr.B. performing pieces by Bach on his cello and a film about his work this is a good way to see how this amazing man has contributed so much to the Cambodian poor....
