Students at the Presbyterian Ladies College in Perth recently participated in the Helping Hands activity. As part of their school Science Week, PLC staff and students made 26 prosthetic hands which will go to Cambodian landmine victims. The prosthetic hand building compliments some of the other community aid work they are doing in Cambodia.
In September, HC will be delivering and fitting a number of hands in Cambodia and the PLC girls will donating the hands they built as part of this process.
Although students have done the activity overseas, this is the first time it has been done by students in Australia. It was great to see the diverse range of people that this activity appeals to and confirm that it can be just as effective with a group of students as it can be with employees.
