Project Lokun is a medical biannual humanitarian project that serves the region of Pursat, Cambodia, as part of the National University of Singapore Medical Society. Founded in 2006, Project Lokun aims to create positive and sustainable changes in the health of the Cambodian villagers in Pursat. We reach out to villages far from the city centre and serve villagers who would otherwise not have the time or money to obtain proper healthcare.
We hope to cultivate within the Cambodian villagers an interest in their own health, to reconnect them back to their own local healthcare system and to care for them. To achieve this, Project Lokun has formed strong partnerships with many local organisations, schools and healthcare facilities. We also provide acute medical aid and treatment. At the same time, we educate the villagers through house-to-house and school education.
