A trip organized in conjunction with HANDS-ON-HEALTH AUSTRALIA (HoHA), as part of their Global Community Health Exchange Programs, and facilitated by The Remedy Khmer Health Project.
 
These trips are designed to give students the opportunity to provide Myotherapy services to disadvantaged communities around Cambodia. We have partnered with other NGO’s to provide students a completely curated experience that allows them to practice and share their knowledge working with local community groups, all in a safe supervised environment.
Health Sciences: Assisting students will coordinate this project, provide triage to clients,  and provide support for the other students and tour leader. 

From where we stay, to what we do, to where we eat, each has been carefully selected (where possible) to contribute to social enterprises or NGO’s that are working on programs that help benefit the wider community.
These programs include visits to rural communities with little access to health services, organised health treatment camps & general sightseeing.
