We have completed a great week with the team from Colorado. They are in Siem Reap now visiting the temples and doing the tourist thing. We will hook back up with them in Phnom Penh tomorrow and tour them around town for a few days before they depart for the states on Friday.
The week was exciting as always but when you add the optical team to it things are always hopping! It seems that everyone wants glasses! I am not sure if it is just a status symbol partly or not but we helping over 340 this week and must have turned away at least 1000 for optical care.
We had three medical docs also and they saw around 700 for the week. The lowly dental clinic saw close to 200 patients with the majority having extractions. The dental patient has to be a little more committed to the visit than the medical or optical ones. The dental patient has to leave something behind!
All in all we had a great week. These guys were great working super hard all week without the least complaints….at least that I heard! We hope they will come and visit us again in the future.
