Off to Kratie again! Cheryl and Megan are hitting the road for a week in Cambodia to meet with our new sponsors, Drs. Bill and Lori Housworth. We are delighted to be working with them on integrating our adult clinics with their bricks and mortar children’s clinic that they just opened in Kratie. The Housworths have the backing of the Kratie Provincial Health Director and the Cambodia government. They are committed to education for clinic and hospital staff, as well as patients and their families. This is a great match with our mission.
Cheryl and Megan are also planning to do a few clinics to reconnect with long term patients, many who have come to see us year after year. Bunly Kep, our in-country Program Director and our sponsored doctoral student, will join Cheryl and Megan to translate and to handle logistics for this short visit. Stay tuned to the blog to follow their adventures.
Thank you to our key sponsor, The Gourley Family Foundation. Bob and Marlese have once again stepped up to help us with our clinic logistics offering not only financial support but a great deal of moral support. Various family and friends have also contributed to our work. LifeHealth LLC has supplied needed medical supplies for the first clinics in January.
