A group of local doctors, nurses and medical technicians is hitting the road Friday, making the long trek to Cambodia to provide medical assistance and perform surgeries.
They are members of Medical Outreach and Community Assistance of Western New York, making their 11th trip offering medical help around the world. Most of the team is from Sisters of Charity Hospital.
They fly out of Toronto on a 14-hour trip to Hong Kong, then go on to the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, where they will be based in a government hospital. Patients will come to them.
