  3. MINISTER TO HIV/AIDS PATIENTS IN CAMBODIA — Here’s a group looking for nurses and doctors to help with AIDS patients in Cambodia. The ministry in Phnom Pehn is an intense medically centered ministry where you will work with HIV/AIDS patients and minister to children orphaned because of this disease on a Buddhist Wat, as well as encourage long- term missionaries. You can begin immediately and work through the summer, but you must have a strong heart for the sick and be very flexible as there will be long hours and rugged conditions.

  4. HOW DOES INSURANCE HANDLE SARS? — When asked about SARS, one source (TTc) said the insurers were telling them, ” “SARS is considered a chronic condition (there being no administered treatment to cure …the body must cure itself as it is a virus). However, the TTc programme covers acute exacerbations of the condition, so if a member needs hospitalisation, we would look to cover this eventuality.” I guess the bottom line is: it’s a difficult condition to treat… with no clearcut solutions. Be careful. For more information about TTc and its solutions, log on at: http://www.talent-trust.com

  5. TEACH IN TAIWAN THIS FALL — Here’s a group needing teachers in Taiwan for the September ’03 school year to teach english reading, writing, listening and speaking, and/or ESP in both university and extension programs.
