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 to needy children in a village outside Siem Reap in Northern Cambodia. Outside the clinic, volunteers have the chance to get to know the local village people and take in rural life in the countryside. Volunteers work in the clinic for 6 days. After the clinic, the journey continues with sightseeing of Angkor Wat and the surrounding area.

“What keeps me coming back is the very special camaraderie within every team. When volunteering with such high need populations, you just want to take care of the kids the best you can – it’s the only thing on your mind. My only regret is not having started this work when I was even younger – it’s made me more complete.” – Nick L. – volunteer since 2010
