“I have had the privilege of carrying out primary health care clinics in disadvantaged communities with sixteen incredibly passionate fellow nursing students; led by the two finest nurses I have ever had the pleasure of nursing under and call my friends. Add to our team a handful of amazingly talented Cambodian Medical students who are the future of this country and our in-country partner, [GROUND Cambodia Community Manager] Linda; an inspirational women whose organization and beautifully gentle soul made this trip simply incredible.”
“Our trip was very well done. The drivers were great and so were the activities. The food was excellent but almost too much. I don’t think we need 5-course meals every night! The kids really enjoyed the street food. Everyone from the drivers to the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful too. [GROUND Vietnam Community Coordinator] Anh did a great job of fixing hotel issues on the first day!”
“So grateful for this crazy experience in Cambodia. I would have never thought that I would have ended up here, I now feel like a local and am so grateful for all the incredibly sweet Cambodian people that I have been able to get to know. Thank you to [GROUND Cambodia’s] Linda Oum for all your help whilst we have been here, you are amazing!!!”
“We were privileged to walk on that ground, touch those children and become friends with [GROUND Cambodia’s] Linda and our interpreters. It was starting to feel like family. Now that is one big reason for all of us to chase a dream and stand in someone else’s shoes. It changes you – for the better.”
“As our in-country partner, [GROUND Thailand’s Community Coordinator] Wan was invaluable. She met us on the day we arrived in Bangkok and she was able to give us some great advice right from the start. She was also available to answer our questions throughout our time in Thailand.”
