Cambodia is also home to the famous Angkor Wat, a 12th-century Hindu temple that is on the Cambodian national flag and is an example of Khmer architecture.
Poipet is the city we will be traveling to and living in. It is on the far northwest border of Cambodia and Thailand (in green above). Andrew will be working with the WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) projects, focusing on providing clean water sources for rural schools. Whitney will be working with a SP partner medical clinic in Poipet, providing primary care and rural village health visits.
Right now, we are in a whirl of packing up our stuff, selling off our unwanted belongings on Craigslist, finding a renter for our house, and completing our requirements for departure! I (Whitney) only have 3 weeks left of working at Children's Mercy in the ER, and I have to admit, I'm looking forward to the 10 day break I'll have before we depart!
