Cambodia co-op­er­a­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

A SEA con­tainer packed with do­nated hos­pi­tal equip­ment is on its way to Cambodia, thanks to hos­pi­tal vol­un­teers and Christ Church Gram­mar School stu­dents.

Se­nior ra­di­ol­o­gist Anita Bourke has been work­ing with the Hos­pi­tal Equip­ment Ser­vice to co-or­di­nate do­na­tions from Sir Charles Gaird­ner Hos­pi­tal to send to the Nokor Tep Foun­da­tion.

The foun­da­tion de­vel­ops im­proved health pro­grams, fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices for Cam­bo­dian women and raises funds for the Nokor Tep Women’s Hos­pi­tal in Ph­nom Penh, with do­na­tions pro­cessed by Ro­tary Aus­tralia World Com­mu­nity Ser­vice.

A group of Year 10 boys from CCGS joined Dr Bourke’s team re­cently to fill a sea con­tainer with beds no longer re­quired by Perth hos­pi­tals and con­sum­ables like dress­ings.
