THEY NEED YOU

SUPPORT OUR ACTION

by becoming a donor member or by joining our team of field-based osteopaths

Cambodia,
an ever-changing osteopathic project

The story began with a meeting of volunteers in 2005. Their action, by providing osteopathic treatments, has made it possible to treat the suffering of orphans and children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The progression of care has been constant since 2008 with two sessions of care and about 3000 treatments each year. Three volunteers created this NGO. There are now more than 40 of them.

“They give their hands and time for the care of children who are victims of birth defects, whether physical, psychological or social. Osteopathic treatments free them from adverse childhood experiences and give them joy and happiness. I am happy to give my time and energy to this project with teams of volunteers totally in the spirit of the NGO initiated by its Founders. The future that lies ahead is that of the transmission of our osteopathic know-how. The teaching sessions have begun and are preparing the Khmer trainers of tomorrow, while this new health profession is being created in Cambodia.”

(Patrick Jouhaud, Chairman)

Several thousand treatments, 40 volunteer osteopaths

These treatments and field actions are supported by: GETM&ASETHEMA, the association Enfance Arc en Ciel, Rotary clubs, “granulés du Limousin”, Audéfi chartered accountants. Docosteocam is the Osteopath of Phare Ponleu Selpak and PhareCircus.

Doing for others is good, but teaching them how to do it themselves is better

Our project today is to transmit our osteopathic knowledge and know-how. Dr. Sin Sotikun is the first O.C. in Cambodia. We are opening a consultation clinic in Phnom Penh. Teaching takes place at Calmette Hospital for health professionals, as well as at the University of Health Sciences

Our first day of treatment. We were about to begin the first morning. Sitting next to the treatment table, I exchanged a word with a friend from the mission: we were about to begin our first morning. I turned my head and there she was… Just like a feather, without a sound, she arrived, ‘deposited’ on my table… Her nanny ...

During this mission, the whole of the docOstéocam team is working at the M’Lop Tapang school in the heart of Sihanoukville. The atmosphere is “tense”, the noises from the nearby streets are deafening, the hustle and bustle of the children playing in the concrete playground resonates all around our treatment tables. There is not a sprig of greenery in sight, ...

A red dirt track running through flooded paddy fields A large, flat area dotted with palm trees. Yellow rice drying on tarpaulins in front of the houses. A green sign at the corner points the way to the orphanage. Our bodies are shaken by the badly worn road, and sway as we drive over the puddles. Our cheerful hearts watch ...

In these moments between dreams and reality, a fortnight comes to life like fragments of a fantasy. The warmth of the group mingles with solitude, creating a fragile harmony.  The country itself becomes a symphony of the senses: vibrant colours, interwoven sounds and scents, enchanting warmth. At the heart of this experience, osteopathic care becomes a moment of beauty and ...

Never been there

I’d never been there before. From the first to the last child we were to see together, like the fingers on a hand, or rather two hands. So much violence and so many abandoned, all these shortcomings, all these badly healed wounds, these tight “corsets”.  Let things go, let things come, not want anything. Our Osteopathy was there, like a ...
