Laos

Through sending Singapore volunteers, we have been working with our partners in Laos since 1997 on various projects.

One such project is the training of paediatric and obstetric surgeons, doctors and nurses.

Led by Dr Ng Kee Chong, head of Children's Emergency at Singapore’s KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, the volunteer team of doctors and nurses has been making regular trips to Vientiane and working with Laotian medical staff to lower the city’s infant and maternal mortality rate.

We’ve also worked with Ang Poh Wah, our Outstanding Singapore International Volunteer 2012 Special Commendation Award recipient, who helped to equip more than 25 drug rehabilitation workers with the skills and knowledge to improve their rehabilitation service. In turn, they will help to reduce relapse rates of drug abusers in the country.

If you’d like to learn more about our work in Laos or get involved, please email us at siv@sif.org.sg.
