WASHINGTON DC - A group of Cambodian-American medical volunteers will travel to Takeo province in February to provide free medical treatment and check-ups to the rural poor.

The team, which will include more than 150 medical personnel, will offer a wide range of services, including eye and dental care, said Tan Song, a doctor and director of the Cambodian Health Professionals Association of America.

“Cambodian people suffer from a lot of general illnesses,” he said. For the elderly, that can include diabetes, high blood pressure, dermatology and lung disease. For the young, it can be malnutrition and other illnesses that harm their growth.

Tan Song, who has made two previous visits under a similar program, said Cambodians rarely see doctors, and some have not seen a dentist in 15 years.


“We will include health awareness education on dental care and health care as well,” said Dr. Tan Song. “They have to exercise in order to have good health.”

A petition filed at the International Criminal Court in October 2014 alleged that a group of politicians, security chiefs and business magnates in Cambodia have involved in systematic illegal seizures of land from poor people. They committed various crimes as part of their campaign, which included murder, forcible transfer of populations, illegal imprisonment, persecution, and other inhumane acts, according to Richard Rogers of Global Diligence. VOA Khmer Men Kimseng interviewed Richard Rogers while he was in Washington DC last week to seek international support and explain to Cambodian diaspora community in the US about the case.
