Itinerary


Upon arrival in Phnom Penh, you and your group will transport to your hotel, unload and gather for a group dinner before turning in for the night.

Wake up to breakfast provided to you at the hotel and attend the required team orientation to further prepare you for clinic! Your team leader will assign your roles for clinic, go over our clinic protocols, and discuss the communities you will be serving in Cambodia.

After orientation, you will be free to go into the city to explore. After an evening of touring Phnom Penh, your group will go back to your hotel for dinner. Be sure to get a good night’s rest as you prepare for your first day of clinic the following day!

At your clinic sites in Cambodia, you will serve communities of migrant workers, unregistered individuals, and ethnic minorities throughout Phnom Penh and Kampong Speu. Each day, plan to eat breakfast at the Frangipani and depart early to set up clinic. Prepare to immerse yourself in the cultures of those you will serve and hear their stories of the Khmer Rouge.

After five full days of clinic, you and the team will be able to tour some of the most famous landmarks in Cambodia including the Kmer Rouge Killing Fields, the Royal Palace and a river tour.

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel then bid farewell to beautiful Cambodia as you head to the airport for your international flight home.

ប្រទេសកម្ពុជា

Welcome to Cambodia! From an outsider’s first glance, its pristine golden beaches, tranquil rice paddies, lush jungle landscapes, and vibrant sunsets over the world’s largest religious structure are the allure of this country. Cambodia’s tragic history defined by decades of political unrest, violence, and poverty has surprisingly shaped an inspiring, optimistic and warm population. As a visitor, it is a powerful experience to feel the serenity emitted by Cambodia’s paradisiacal landscapes in harsh contrast to the magnitude of strife previously endured. This poignant intersection of a painful past and developing present leaves no visitor untouched.

In partnership with International Medical Relief and Cambodia, your group will help work on a major goal of the country: to improve access to healthcare and preventative education to health conditions. This is no easy task – during the bloody regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, the health care system as a whole was decimated, with virtually no doctors left in the country at the end of the regime. Even today, more than 40 years after the end of the Khmer Rouge, the United Nations Millennium Project proclaimed that only 13 percent of the country visited health facilities last year, and 22.9 percent of children die before the age of 5. Treatable diseases like malaria, intestinal parasites, cholera, diarrhea, tuberculosis, and yaws, as well as vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles are endemic and claim lives everyday. The situation is improving as a whole but among the populations that we serve healthcare is almost nonexistent.
