Joan Healy

Joan Healy is an Australian who has lived among Cambodians since she began working in a refugee camp on Cambodia’s border in 1989. When the population of the camp was relocated back to Cambodia she was invited to mentor efforts to rebuild community in villages divided by civil war. Until 1997 her home was in a village at the edge of Battambang in the war-torn north of the country. She continues to be invited back to Cambodia to facilitate, review NGOs and share her experience of education and human development. Joan is a member of the Sisters of St Joseph.
