Surgical Friends Foundation Mission Trip Debriefing - Angkor Hospital for Children, Cambodia

On January 1 - 11, 2010 I traveled to Cambodia with Surgical Friends Foundation for a surgical mission trip. There I, with four other volunteer surgeons, operated on 25 children with congenital facial deformities and some land mine victims. The picture above was taken at 5:45 am, right before sunrise, at Angkor Watt temple. This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. Yet the poverty of their country is unimaginable; an average worker in Cambodia makes less than $2 per day.
