|Learning about wound care|
One of the questions asked was what if one had a burn, what would you do to treat it? Some of the responses included using toothpaste, fish sauce and bananas. Of course this is not the real treatment but for us as Westerners living in country where medical care is so limited, it fascinating to learn what people in Cambodia would consider using to treat different type of ailments.

In all of this basic first aid training, it is important for our staff to learn how to deal with any medical emergencies within the community home but we also hope to teach these same lessons to the young women that will be part of our home. Dr. Jain will be back again for two more sessions teaching on Women's health and discussing the female anatomy as well as STDs and personal hygiene to name a few of her topics. We are grateful for her input and her recommendations as we develop our health and safety plans within the RAP home.
