We went to a school in Obrum, one of the villages in Cambodia where we ran a mobile village clinic as part of Mission Srolanh.
Mission Srolanh, an annual medical mission trip to Cambodia, was initiated five years ago by a group of Catholic medical students from Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (YLLSoM) and doctors from the Catholic Medical Guild of Singapore.
We believe in evangelisation through our actions – starting and ending our clinics in prayer.
For Mission Srolanh 2013, our identity as Catholic missionaries was strengthened.
Working together with the Apostolic Prefecture of Battambang, a team of medical students and doctors provided free medical check-ups at mobile village clinics and clinical education for the villagers.
We also conducted sharings with less fortunate youths at the Don Bosco Foundation and the Arrupe Welcome Centre for People with Disabilities. Many of them are victims of landmine accidents.
For student Teri Teoh, 20, “Mission Srolanh has been an excellent opportunity for us to grow spiritually and to commit ourselves to serving the Cambodian community.”
“It was a call for me to place my trust in the Lord and seek to do His will through my thoughts and actions.”
The next Mission Srolanh will take place from Dec 14-21.
