THEY NEED YOU
SUPPORT OUR ACTION
by becoming a donor member or by joining our team of field-based osteopaths
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.”
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

So we set off for the orphanage of Sovannaphum – Jacqueline, Anne, Sotikun, and our dear Dominique – yes … a little masculine energy was required in this small group of osteopaths. Once the girls had been raised into the “cattle truck” as we called it, or “children’s bus” in Asia, we drove for a few kilometres away from Battambang ...

MISSION IMPRESSIONS NOVEMBER 2017 Under the aircraft wing we could see the muddy diversions of a river, and a flooded plain. I was dazzled by the water everywhere! An immense lake at the centre of the country, which either emptied into the Mekong, or was filled during the monsoon by an inversion streaming in from a stretch flowing back from ...

The desire to leave to discover other things, other horizons, other ways of living, but not as a tourist. To travel while exploiting a passion that inspires me – doing good to others. Feeling that I’m useful with what I can offer. And this is what I have been able to achieve with DOCOSTEOCAM. A close-knit group always ready to ...

Hands that heal, accompany, surround, embrace and give. Cambodia, day after day, treatment after treatment, encounter after encounter, the desire to experience a moment together. An, Sophea or Sun – the first name of that young lady with pink tracksuit bottoms. She stood close to my treatment table and watched me. She waited for me to gesture she could ...

To speak of my second assignment, I have decided not to speak of the treatment, the children, the suffering encountered: others are much better with words than me for this purpose. I would like to talk about US, those of us who take part in these missions, and who come back from these travels as changed persons, who find it ...

Giving selfless love, souls come together, and the energy of the group connects up with health. There can be no intention behind how ...
