How you can Help

Project Lokun is a non-profit humanitarian project wholly owned by medical students from the NUS Medical Society. For the past few years, we have relied greatly on the kind support of donors, sponsors, and volunteers for the success of our trips to Cambodia.

Here are a few ways you can help us!

  1. Volunteer as a Doctor
  2. Cash Donation
  3. Sponsorship in Kind

1. Volunteer as a Doctor

We are always looking for doctors to help us in our endeavour. Doctors are a crucial part of Project Lokun’s mission and we would not have been able to do it without your help. Do look for us for we would love for you to join future projects and make a difference to the Cambodians!

The role of our doctors volunteers are to provide consultation at our mobile and on-site clinics which would be held over a length of 2 – 4 days throughout the two weeks of our trip. We welcome doctors from all disciplines (both Singaporean and Cambodian) to join us for any duration of time on the trip.

2. Cash Donation

We wish to appeal to you for donations, which will be crucial in our bid to further improve our service to the various villages.

The money that you donate will help us in these three key areas:

  1. Clinics & Pharmacy :
    • to renew our expiring stocks of drugs and obtain other essential items for the running of our clinics in the various villages
  2. Health Education :
    • The printing of personalized health education pamphlets for adult villagers to remind the villagers of what we have taught them about hygiene practices and other useful healthcare information
    • to print educational materials such as flipcharts and health education booklets for the primary school children in the 4 schools that Project Lokun teaches health- related topics to eg. Oral hygiene. The hope is that through educating the children, they will bring the lessons home to their various communities and influence a positive change in the health of the village.

  3. Referrals :
    • To improve our referral services from the temporary clinics we set up in the villages to nearby hospitals and health centers for the more serious chronic and acute cases that we are unable to treat.

We hope that you would generously contribute to our cause as your support is vital for Project Lokun to maintain its operations. Every contribution, no matter how big or small, will go a long way in helping our Cambodian friends.
