Plasticos Cambodia 2010 Team

“The purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others.” — Albert Schweitzer

July 7, 2010.

Been back in the United States for about a week now, and have had a flurry of questions from family, friends, and colleagues about our mission to Siem Reap, Cambodia. “How was your trip?” is a question I hear several times a day. And I have to admit, I never tire of sharing my stories because in doing so, I am hoping to inspire others to volunteer, and to raise awareness of global health issues, as well. Most people don’t realize that it takes so little to donate your time or efforts, and make a difference in someone else’s life. Each trip I have taken with Plasticos exceeds the last because I am experiencing more and more first-hand what an influential difference our presence makes, although it is only for a short time, in all of the countries I have volunteered in so far. Plasticos is not only dedicated to providing life changing reconstructive surgery to children in need, but is also equally dedicated to teaching.  Dr. Nicther actively involved all of the local surgeons at Angkor Children’s Hospital in each surgery, which provided for a positive and interactive learning environment.  What a great reward that is for everyone involved.
