Project Overview and History
The Rotaract Club of Singapore (City) is a service club for young men and women aged 18 to 30. The
Rotaract Club of Singapore (City) is under the care of Rotary Club of Singapore.

Each year, the Rotaract Club of Singapore (City) organizes an International Understanding Project. This is a
service-learning mission that aims to help the less fortunate in international communities and to let club
members gain exposure to a world outside their own. This project follows the successes of
1. Project Angkor 2007 and 2008 (which won Best Rotaract Club in District 3310 and the Rotary
International Presidential Citation Award for 2008/2009)
2. Project Karawaci 2009 (which won Best Rotaract District Project)
3. Mission Peaceful Children Home 2010 (which won the Best Rotaract District Project)
4. Project Sothea 2012 and 2013

In 2014, we organised an outreach mission to Phnom Penh and Battambang, Cambodia.

History
Project Sothea was initiated in 2010 under the name, “Mission: Peaceful Children Home 2”. This was an
offshoot from Coast-to-Coast Singapore, which organizes volunteer outreach missions to Cambodia, Laos,
Indonesia and India. Rotaract Club of Singapore (City) decided to collaborate with the same NGO, Khmer
Foundation of Peace, Justice and Development. In 2011, we started to provide health screenings for the
nearby village of Kamping Puay on top of working with Peaceful Children’s Home 2.

In 2012, we expanded our project to include the slum communities located in Phnom Penh. These
communities have little access to healthcare and reside in dumpsites located in the urban city. In Phnom
Penh, we collaborated with an international NGO known as Pour un Sourire D’Enfant (PSE) in conjunction
with a local charity, Solutions to End Poverty (STEP), to provide health screenings for the residents in the
slum communities. We also aim to establish a rudimentary healthcare system for the new community and to
inculcate healthier and more hygienic lifestyle practices after the residents are relocated.

Participant Profile
The Project Sothea 2014 team consists of 25 Rotaract Club members who are first- and second-year medical
students from the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS). There were 4
qualified doctors who joined us during the trip and helped to conduct consultations.

Project Sothea 2014 – Outreach to Phnom Penh
Dates: 9th to 12th December 2014
Collaborations
1. Pour Sourire un D’Enfant (PSE)
a. This is an international NGO which has been based in Cambodia for the past fourteen years,
specializing in the education of urban slum children
2. Solutions to End Poverty (STEP)
a. A Singapore-based organization that focuses on helping the underprivileged break out of the
poverty cycle through community development

Beneficiaries
1. Urban dumpsite slum communities
2. SMILE villagers

Background
STEP is in the processing of implementing Project SMILE, which is an initiative that aims to relocate the
residents of the slums into a new compound that allows them to be self-sufficient and function as a
community. It will be equipped with proper housing, agricultural farms, a proper sanitation system and a
health clinic. As a team of to-be healthcare professionals, we form the core group of healthcare professionals
in Project SMILE, where we hope to set up an integrated healthcare system. This health system would
contain the health profile and history of all the families living under PSE. We also hope to promote healthier
lifestyle through education at the level of individuals and of the community. We have PSE’s support for the
integration of our education and projects within this community development blueprint. We also worked
closely with the Health Department doctors to develop a feasible healthcare system for the village. As the
relocation process was still ongoing, we conducted health screening for the poor who still live in the slums.

Health Screening
Objectives
1. Provide acute and symptomatic relief for common illnesses
2. Set up a sustainable and practical healthcare system for the SMILE villagers (personal health record
system with family profiles)
3. Conduct health surveys
a. To monitor healthcare related trends to identify and cater to the health needs and common
illnesses of the community
b. To evaluate the effectiveness of our screenings for future improvement

Project Sothea 2014

5

What We Did
1. Provide free health screening and medication for 96 villagers in SMILE Village and 197 villagers
from the slum communities
a. Basic health parameters (height, weight, visual acuity, blood pressure, capillary blood
glucose, temperature)
b. Hair lice and open wounds treatment
c.

Consultation

d. Prescribed medications and vitamins
e.

Deworming (Mebendazole)
i. To provide relief for the symptoms of stomachache, vomiting and diarrhea

f.

Referrals to hospitals for chronic and emergency cases

2. Start health record system for families in SMILE Village
3. Conduct health surveys for families in SMILE Village and slum communities
4. Collate and analyse health data gathered from health screening (Appendix A)
5. Collate and analyse information gathered from health surveys (Appendix B)

What Was Done Differently From 2013
1. Streamlined health clinic flow for more efficient use of manpower and resources
2. Re-organised health survey to ensure that questions were more relevant and phrased in a manner
that gave us more specific answers

Impact
1. Number of SMILE Villagers screened: 43 adults, 53 children (total: 96)
2. Number of villagers from Paillot Prek Toil: 66 adults, 42 children (total: 108)
3. Number of villagers from Paillot Sen Sok: 39 adults, 50 children (total: 89)
4. Total number of villagers: 148 adults, 145 children (total: 293)

Future Plans
We realise that the objectives of the Phnom Penh and Battambang legs of our project are starting to deviate
and it would be stretching ourselves too thin to be able to fulfill the needs of both beneficiaries effectively.
Hence, the Phnom Penh part of the project would be started as a separate offshoot from Project Sothea in
the upcoming years. All the information that we have collated in the past years would be handled over to the
new team so that they would be better able to identify the needs of villagers in SMILE Village and improve
the health standard accordingly.

13

a. Avoid use of gasoline, which is dangerous, un-environmentally friendly and not cost effective
2. To allow access to clean water
a. Prevent spread of water-borne diseases and reduce the incidence of conditions such as
diarrhea

What We Did
1. Sponsoring of Hydrologic ceramic water filters
a. Ownership: villagers had to pledge to save 1 USD every month and pass it to the village chief
so that they can afford their own water filters after 2 years, which is the expiry of each filter
2. Subsidising of Kamworks solar lamps to 400 families in Kamping Puay
a. Ownership: villagers have to pay for 50% of the cost (6 USD) of the solar lamps but the
amount can be paid by installments to our partner NGO

Impact
1. 447 families in Sra Kaew received a water filter each
2. 400 families in Kamping Puay received a solar lamp each

Future Plans
1. Set up communal fund within each village that can be used for healthcare needs of the community
2. Evaluate effectiveness of Kamworks solar lamps and look into implementing same initiative in Sra
Kaew
3. Introducing the concept of saving to villagers

Moving Forward
Children of Sothea
Background
Project Sothea has always been a 2 year long project for each new member with the eventual parting once a
member returns from the trip in Year 2. The dedication and love that members have develop for the project
however does not die off so easily. Thus, there is a need to find new ways to allow members to continue
contributing to the project beyond Year 2.
It is our hope that members are able to see the fruits of their labour many years from when they first set foot
in this project. No matter what might change from year to year, the core values and goals of the project will
be something that always holds true and dear to us.
Aim and Goals
We aim to create an alumni club for past Project Sothea members to continue to contribute to the project in
one way or another. The pioneers of Project Sothea would be graduating this year. It is our hope that we can
engage them to come back in the new future as doctors on the trip. Hence, Project Sothea members can go
through the full experience of the project, from being a new member, to a senior and ultimtaely a doctor or
mentor to the project. We want to provide a holistic experience for all our members who have come to join
this family.
Steps Taken
In order to get seniors more involved and be well informed as well as to allow juniors to seek advice when
necessary, some ideas include:



A group for seniors who are willing to help to be updated on the project when necessary
More senior-junior groups (i.e. within committees) to help share ideas and give advice
Sharing of contacts
Seniors as ambassadors of project

Somewhere in the Future

Possibility of going back in Year 4 as an elective
Going to visit when possible to have a bigger presence there
