Medical Care


Description

Medical Care

Our team of Cambodian nurses and doctors, along with visiting volunteer medical professionals, provide medical and dental care at M’Lop Tapang’s Medical Clinic. Additionally, medical services and health education are also provided directly in the community through regularly scheduled outreach visits to poor neighborhoods in the local area. The most common conditions treated are related to those diseases and illnesses often associated with living in poverty: malnutrition, diarrheal diseases, acute respiratory infections, skin infections, and minor trauma.
A Baby Care Program, under the direction of the Medical Team, works with children under the age of 5-years old who attend a daytime program at the Education Center. The program provides intensive care for children that have been identified as suffering from neglect or severe malnutrition and offers supervised care, healthy food, hygiene and medical care for the children and as well as education with the parents.
