EV-71 Virus Update

We reopened officially on 30 July after being closed due to the EV-71 virus scare.  It’s been quite tumultuous with some acrimonious press stating the closures did more harm then good, due to the scare the communities faced.  Still, the death of young children is something to be sad about.  A New Khmer TV campaign will be aired in an attempt to educate locals.  Not sure of it’s effectiveness (most don’t own a TV but they are in all the local Khmer eateries where locals often congregate to watch)  but a start.  It was particularly difficult to get up-to-date information, as the Minstry of Education never published anything officially on their website, their Facebook account or there twitter account.  The only real upside was we managed to give the Center a good cleaning!

Lee Verlander from Monkey Replubic, one of our local business sponsors, raised his hand and donated the 60 school books and associated stationery we needed for the kids, so a huge thanks to Lee.
