Kildeer man seeks volunteers for humanitarian projects

Stout's Center for Global Initiatives is collaborating with the Flying Doctors group to lead Project Niņos this summer in Bolivia. The pioneering project provides basic health care to hundreds of children living in Bolivian prisons with their incarcerated parents. It is the first non-Bolivian group granted access to three prisons, Stout said.
The Cambodian project, known as Sustainable Medical Arts, Research & Technology is in collaboration with a nonprofit children's hospital in Siem Reap. The goal is to work with the hospital's nursing and medical staff to train women in rural villages to use basic public health practices and emergency medical care.

Magee and his high school sweetheart and wife, Kathy, 62, a nurse and clinical social worker, estimate that more than 100,000 children have been helped by Operation Smile, which they started immediately after that first mission in 1982.
