Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists needed in Cambodia

Volunteer group at Home of HopeHome of Hope is a centre for children and male adults living with disabilities. It lies on the outskirts of Phnom Penh and is one of our three partner organisations for our physiotherapy and occupational therapy projects.

We are delighted to announce that, after a summer of hard work, our volunteers have finished converting two disused rooms at the centre into a physiotherapy room and a sensory room. An amazing group from a school in Australia started the renovations by creating and decorating the physiotherapy room. They then passed the baton on to our hard working Short-term Special volunteers in July who finished constructing the sensory room and providing much needed shade over the playground.

We are immensely grateful to both of these groups for their help with the transformation and we are now trying to ensure that their efforts have a long term impact. We are, therefore, now seeking independent-minded, professional physiotherapists and occupational therapists to help care for the 39 residents at the centre. If you have spent at least three years studying physiotherapy or occupational therapy at university, you’d also be very welcome.

Newly equipped physiotherapy roomIn accordance with the Projects Abroad Care Management Plan, we have made a long-term commitment to improving the quality of life for those living with disabilities. With the help of skilled volunteers, we hope to offer the specialised stimulation that is severely lacking for these patients.

Skilled volunteers are also able to help train some of the local staff in basic treatments like massage and how to properly hold and support the children.
