Da was only 9 years old when he fell from a palm tree and broke his arm. Infection set in. Without proper medical attention, and with no access to antibiotics there was no alternative. The village adults had to make a decision. To save Da's life, his arm was amputated.
World of Difference provides tours, including schoolies tours, where volunteers work in and donate to several schools and villages, together with a range of cultural and tourism activities. The initial focus has been in Cambodia. Its core mission is to expose participants to the needs of Rotary projects in developing countries. As a result of the tours, Rotary clubs have initiated their own projects. Contact: Rob Hines (Central Melbourne)
