CAMBODIA - Education Seminars and Local Clinics

This will be the fourth year Project Helping Hands and the Emergency Nursing Association (ENA) in partnership work together providing educational experiences to students and medical professionals with the University of Puthisastra and clinics/education in needy areas around the Phnom Penh area.
We bring volunteers to this region with the objective to strengthen and improve the Education system and health outcomes for people in the communities. Through health assessment, primary care and preventive education we strive to reduce the morbidity in the populations we serve.
