SAMARITAN’S PURSE CAMBODIA MEDICAL TEAM MARCH 2017

On this unique team, Canadian medical professionals will help to run medical, dental and eyeglass clinics as well as take part in the construction of a water filter.

Despite the natural beauty and rich history of Cambodia, it is primarily known for the suffering endured under the Khmer Rouge regime, which came to power in the 1970’s. In the subsequent years, Cambodia’s people struggled to survive slave labour, malnourishment, disease, and a guerrilla war that only ended in 1998. Though much of the country was left in ruins, Cambodia today is at peace. Since 2003, Samaritan’s Purse has been involved in the task of helping Cambodians – known as the Khmer – rebuild their lives and communities.

Project: Through our “Water for Kids” program, we are working in rural communities to install Samaritan Filters at schools across Cambodia and running an after-school program to share biblical stories and the message of Christ with children. 

On this unique team, Canadian medical professionals will help to run medical, dental and eyeglass clinics as well as take part in the construction of a water filter.
