The Clinics committee primarily aims to provide free acute medical
care to the villages we serve. They plan the operations of these
acute clinics: purchasing drugs, acquiring logistics and recruiting
doctors. The committee also collects and analyses data collected
during the clinics process, so to better understand the epidemiology
of the villagers we serve and craft our initiatives to suit them.
The Education committee spearheads all initiatives that increase the
health knowledge of the villagers in Pursat, both for children and
adults. They work with relevent partner organisations to plan and
create relevant content for lessons, as well as supporting materials like
pamphlets, booklets and activities. It is our hope that knowledge gained
through their efforts will allow villagers to take full responsibility of their
health in the long term.
The Development committee is mainly responsible for ensuring the
sustainability of Project Lokun. Their work involves analysing the
needs of the villagers and exploring ways to reconnect villagers by
complementing the local systems through NGOs and healthcare
institutions there. In addition, the committee is responsible for
reconnecting Cambodians in Pursat back to their local healthcare
system through our patient referral system.
The Marketing committee is responsible for the image of Project Lokun,
both to our professional partners and to our fellow university students.
They build and maintain close relationships with our sponsors,
whose contributions ensure the smooth running of all our operations.
Marketing also oversees our fundraising initiatives, making sure that
the Project is able to reach its fullest potential.
Our ‘Cambridges’ committee (‘Cambodia’ + ‘Bridges’) cements our
relationship with the University of Puthisastra (UP). They take
charge of bonding Singapore and UP Lokuners, conducting
our public health and community service workshop for the
UP Lokuners, and oversee the collaboration between the
University of Puthisastra Planning Committee (UPPC) and the
Singapore arm of Project Lokun.
