The angle of meaningful travel is hopefully of interest to you.
Many families visiting the hospital have become inspired to volunteer and become long term donors. In fact the experience has been so profoundly moving that some families have changed their regular restful and relaxing travel to volunteering and philanthropic experiences. The gift of family time and experiential relationships while being philanthropic has not only been immensely rich but been an opportunity for authentic immersion in different cultures and has deepened their family time, core values and personal experiences. Some teenagers, so motivated to engage with Angkor Hospital for Children and the Lao Friends Hospital for Children have applied to the volunteer program and changed their academic goals to medical school or international relations.
