Be part of a pioneer humanitarian project in the villages of northwest Cambodia. Working in partnership with HUSK and the Shinta Mani Foundation, we will set up a mobile dental clinic and provide first time dental care for children in a village outside Siem Reap. During the clinic, volunteers get to know the local village people and take in rural countryside life.
Volunteers work in the clinic for six days. After the clinic, the journey continues with a very special week of sightseeing in Burma including Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay.
