CHPAA is an impartial, neutral and independent organization that is exclusively humanitarian, working to promote health and social well-being through ongoing service and education to medically underserved Cambodians living in both the United States and Cambodia.


This year (CHPAA) in collaboration with the University of Puthisastra, International University, and University of Health Sciences conducted Free Health Screen and Treatments for people in Pursat Province.


On behalf of University of Puthisastra, we would like to express our grateful thanks to CHPAA for giving the opportunity to UP students for participating in this mission, and thank to our UP students for their helpful and successful participation in this mission. We hope that CHPAA will continue cooperating with UP to allow our students to participate in the next CHPAA’s mission.
Project Lokun is a Bi-annual Humanitarian Project headed by National University of Singapore (NUS) medical students.

Cooperating with University of Puthisastra, In December 2015 we sent our Medicine and Pharmacy students to join its mission. The project was divided into three main parts:
  1. House To House: the teams walked from one villagers’ house to another to make some medical checkup and promote the free medical service at clinic.
  2. Visiting Clinics: Villagers came to the clinics and consulted with the Doctors about their health and got treatment with free medicine.
  3. Health and Education: they visited local primary school and taught students how to take care of their health.

It is a great honor that Project Sabai 2015 collaborated with University of Puthisastra to send our medical students to assist in translation during the project, which lasted from 08 to 18 December. Noticeably, during the mission, Project Sabai teams with Singaporean Doctors and UP students conducted health care education,village clinics and health screening for children in the targeted places at Don Bosco Schools (Teuk Thla, Toul Kork, and Phum Chreh) and Kampong Speu Province. Interestingly, our medical students who participated in the project were very excited because what they had done was not only the translation, but also the assistance to Singaporean doctors in consulting with the villagers about their health, which enabled them to learn a lot from the project. Moreover, they had a chance to make good relationship and connection with Singaporean Medical students.
On 17th December 2015, a lecture on Eyes and Orthopedics was conducted at University of Puthisastra by doctors from Singapore and four students who are leader of Project Sabai 2015. On behalf of University of Puthisastra, We would like to express our sincere thanks to doctors and Project Sabai team for the meaningful presentation and we hope that there will be such a lecture in the earliest future.

Not everyone is born to be a successful person because success never comes to those who do nothing. We also need to learn from our mistakes and considered it as experiences in order to change that habit and strengthen ourselves to be a better person.

Being knowledgeable and moral is considered as a main factor which also play very important role. Good behavior and morality inspire people to work well with their teamwork who have different personalities.

According to the Japanese producer, he stated that this film took two years and a half to finish it with his three coworkers. He told the reason why he wanted to produce this film because he wants to preserve the original food which is nearly lost its original taste.  On the mountain, he met an old grandmother who is the last person and knows about this recipe. He want to share this recipe to his Japanese people, especially, to mothers because most the mothers who always cook for their family. Mothers have to learn as well as practice more in order to preserve its original taste.
It costs 300,000 US dollars to produce this film. There are also a few sponsors such as French government, Japanese government, and his money. Besides spending a lot of money, he also spends his valuable time to work at the weekend.

Smiling beautifully, he also added that this task teaches him a lot of things such as learning about new recipe food from grandmother,   learning about teamwork because they have different skills.  Actually, sometimes he also argued with his teamwork but it’s not serious. He also emphasized that this task requires a lot of efforts and patience to get success.

All participants are absolutely interested in this film by asking many questions to the producer.  They mostly praised for the techniques of shooting and also wanted to learn more from him. This program was successfully completed with full of enjoyment.
