Based in the Mondul Croap Nei Chivet in Pursat province, Project Lokun is a bi-annual humanitarian project from Singapore that aims to extend healthcare services to rural villages and to reintegrate these villagers back into the nation’s healthcare system.
Pursat province is the 4th largest province in Cambodia, and its capital, Pursat town, lies 174 kilometres northwest of Phnom Penh. However, Pursat remains one of the poorest and underdeveloped areas of Cambodia.
Since 2006, Project Lokun reaches out to villages far from the city centre and serves villagers who would otherwise not have the time or money to obtain proper healthcare. The team usually comprises approximately 20-30 medical students from Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (YLLSoM), National University of Singapore (NUS) and a team of 6-8 accompanying doctors, as well as 10-15 local healthcare students from the University of Puthisastra.
