The program

This amazing program plays an important role in supplying quality healthcare to those in need in Cambodia. It will prove to be a wonderful experience for volunteers currently studying medicine and qualified professionals alike. Love Volunteers partner in Cambodia work with two public hospitals in Phnom Penh, primarily focused in the area of children's health and pediatrics. A volunteer’s involvement will be based on their prior experience and training. It is important to note that volunteers will not be allowed to partake in serious procedures and will be job ‘shadowing’. However, depending on the volunteer’s level of experience, they may observe operations, provide assistance in basic procedures and patient check-ups. There is a high demand for volunteer nurses, doctors and health specialists in this stunning country. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Improve the future prospects of the people of Cambodia
  • Provide quality medical care to the impoverished people served by this project
  • Provide an opportunity for shared learnings  
  • To create a better cultural understanding between all participants 

Details of the hospitals we work with and departments are noted in the 'More Information' section.

How you can help

Volunteers will find a placement on this program to be an extremely beneficial addition to both their medical careers and their life experience. Depending on the placement and the volunteer’s prior skill, duties can include all aspects of pediatric and basic health care, counselling patients, researching and putting together health documents (e.g. on HIV/AIDS), helping ill and HIV infected patients (with feeding, dressing, teaching, playing games) and organizing educational workshops. Volunteers will be placed with a local Doctor and/or Nurse who will guide them in different tasks and activities at the placement. Volunteers will need to think outside of the square as the hospitals have limited resources and equipment and volunteers need to understand that there may be great differences in the resources available. Participants on this program will learn much about the local people and culture – experience that will prove to be invaluable and an important facet of their medical experience.

Volunteers contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Assist medical staff in the treatment of patients
  • Help sort medical supplies and admin duties
  • Help in emergency situations
  • Help on health education programs

 

Volunteers are required to wear scrubs while working at the hospital and you can opt to take your own or purchase them when you arrive. It is also necessary to take a passport size photo to use for your hospital ID card.

Journée Typique

Activités de Loisir

Cambodia's vibrant capital has overcome the hardships of a violent past to once again become a "Pearl of Asia". Whilst tourists are still drawn by the memory of the Khmer Rouge and their horrific Killing Fields (and rightly so, this should never be forgotten), the city itself is taking a cue from it's majestic river and moving on. Chic, bustling bars and restaurants line the riverfront and streets beyond with patrons watching boats cruising, motorbikes and tuk-tuks buzzing and pedestrians strolling on by. The Cambodian people are courageous and incredibly hospitable and a stay in this city is not to be forgotten.

Logement

Volunteers on this program are accommodated in a large, comfortable and well-equipped Volunteer House in central Phnom Penh. A great way to connect with other volunteers in a safe and social environment!

Rooms are shared by up to 4 volunteers, split by gender and each room has its own bathroom with western-style facilities and hot showers. Fans are available for comfort in the summer months and bed linen is provided so volunteers need only bring personal toiletries and towels.

The ground floor of the house has been set up as a spacious communal area volunteers can utilize to relax and socialize. WiFi is available free of charge in all areas of the house and laundry services are available for a small charge. Easy!

Maison des invités
Aliments & Boissons

Volunteers can also request to stay with a local host family who have been carefully selected and are experienced in caring for international volunteers. Host family members will speak some English and provide comfortable, private rooms. Lockable storage will be available for valuables.

Volunteers on our wonderful programs in Phnom Penh are well catered for with breakfast, lunch and dinner available daily at the Volunteer House. Depending on the placement location, volunteers may opt to take lunch at their project site during the week.

Breakfast will consist of a self-serve offering of coffee, tea and juice, bread, crackers, jam and fruit. Depending on your volunteer schedule you can either eat-in or have items wrapped to take with you.

Lunch is typically eaten at the project site, either provided by the placement or eaten out at any of the affordable and accessible local eateries. A great way to sample delicious local fare! Lunch is also available daily at the Volunteer House.

Dinner is a time to relax and socialize with other volunteers and share experiences in the comfort of the Volunteer House. Meals normally include a soup or salad with a main dish of rice, noodles, fresh vegetables, chicken, beef, fish or pork and a small dessert.

If you have special dietary requirements please let us know ahead of time so that we can advise the local team. Vegetarianism can be a strange concept to people in Cambodia and, although we are happy to host vegetarians, it is difficult to guarantee a completely vegetarian diet. Strict vegetarians and vegans should consider this when preparing and be ready to help with the cooking and shop for additional items if necessary.

Please note that all meals provided in the volunteer house are included in the program fees. When eating out it is the volunteer’s responsibility to cover the costs.
