DocTours medical volunteers providing healthcare in Cambodia and are doing terrific work to help the young people build happier and healthier lives.
Don (a paramedic) said: “Wow what an amazing experience being part of the medical volunteer program. I taught the children about hygiene and treated one of the volunteers at the school. Thanks for arranging this; I’m going to spend a few extra days in Siem Reap as I’m really enjoying it”.
Dr Jimmy took a fully equipped emergency medical backpack with him to Cambodia. He taught CPR to the teachers and students at a school and then donated the equipment so they could continue to practice! He is pictured above with some of the young students.
Fiona (a medical student) told us: “I learnt so much and also gained a lot of confidence from the placement where I ended up seeing quite of lot of patients from the community as well as the school children”.
Alison (another medical student): “The hospital placement was an eye opening experience where I was able to see many conditions which are uncommon in Australia such as TB, dengue and a baby born with gastroschisis. The staff at the hospital made an effort to include me in their clinical work.” Alison also presented a huge supply of medical donations to the Medical Director (with thanks to AirborneAid).
