GBF in Battambang Hospital
GBF organizes an annual mission to Battambang in northeastern Cambodia at a local hospital. GBF missions last for roughly one week, including short cultural excursions.
Volunteers can also participate in this project independent of GBF scheduled missions at any time of the year to support the continuity of the program.
Volunteers work at the same health centre at Battambang hospital throughout the mission.
Acupuncturists will work primarily with a team of other acupuncturists, with opportunities to exchange with volunteers in other wards. Acupuncturists will have the chance to see returning patients and follow-up on treatments.
The patient flow is organized by the hospital and structured according to hospital working hours. The hospital provides an air-conditioned room for treatments as well as support services. Accommodation and working conditions are suitable for those unable to work in more physically strenuous conditions.
Languages required for mission: French and/or English
