That's right, your friendly local midwife is heading to Cambodia! I've raised enough money for my tickets, just by selling stuff in a yard sale! I had a few lovely donations from former clients, which was so appreciated. An added bonus is that I will be taking my apprentice Angela along with my mom and brother.
We'll be working for and with a wonderful new NPO called Sisters in Health providing free basic health care, maternity care, reproductive health care, and wellness care for local families. We will also be doing some grunt work, as they will likely still be building their clinic space.
There's times when the universe just clonks you over the head with opportunities to be of service to the world at large, and this seems to be one of those times for me. It is and always has been on my heart to volunteer abroad with people who may not have the chance for kind, compassionate care. I can't wait to get in there and get to it!

“There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask "What if I fall?"
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?”
