Vets With A Mission is pleased to announce its second humanitarian mission team trip for 2011 - Cambodia! This trip to Cambodia will take place June 15 – 30, 2011. Price of this trip from San Francisco is $2,999 based on double occupancy plus a $100 non-refundable deposit (you are responsible for getting to and from San Francisco).

The team is scheduled to go to Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Anlong Veng. In Phnom Penh the team will work three days in San Soke Community where people from the slums of Phnom Penh were moved after the slums were burned down. It’s about 9 km from the center of the city. The team will probably work out of a children’s shelter.

Then the team will fly to Siem Reap and then drive 1.5 hours to Anlong Veng. This was the last holdout of the infamous communist Cambodians the Khmer Rouge. They held control of this area until 2000. The team will work two days in Anlong Veng most likely at a Children’s orphanage.

After returning to Siem Reap from Anlong Veng to work its final two days in a group of seven villages about 40km south of Siem Reap. The medical team will conduct its medical clinic here.

While Vietnam veterans receive priority placement on the team, non-veterans are encouraged to join the team! Both Medical/Health professionals and non-medical/health professionals are needed to volunteer/serve on this humanitarian mission trip. The team will spend two (2) nights in Phnom Penh before beginning seven (7) days of medical team work. The team will end its trip in Siem Reap where a dinner will be held in honor of the Vietnam veterans on the team!
