  • Description

    Description

    I love Cambodia and especially our local community - on this stunning island, the nature, the jungle, the beach, the ocean and scuba diving!

    Having built and set up our Cambodian guest house, over the past 5 years, we are happy to have established it's daily running with good, friendly local staff. To help smooth running and looking after the place and our paying guests - we welcome wonderful, good vibe volunteer/s to join our crew.

    The Health Centre is our project to give back to the wonderful community who are happy to share their home with tourists and foreign visitors. The project has been 4 years in the fundraising and building, now completed and adopted by the mainland health group, we are at a lovely stage of supporting them and working with the local 80 or so children. There may be a lot, or little to do on this side of the work, depending exactly when you join our crew.
