Nurse Ty, conducting a nutrition workshop with students

With the growing number of tourists and locals coming to Koh Rong, the essential need for medical care increases. FoKR has been fortunate to have Nurse Ty open a small pharmacy in the FoKR Centre. Before Nurse Ty arrived, all medical emergencies were dealt with in the FOKR house by volunteers who had received basic first aid training so Ty’s arrival was a huge relief for all. Nurse Ty educates children and locals in nutrition, health and sanitation several times a month and provides free medical treatment and advice for low-income families. He believes education in these areas is necessary as tropical islands pose a greater health risk for people.
