As the Corona-virus pandemic worsens the Cambodian government have decided to close schools and organisations in an effort to limit transitions. Before closing we talked all our students through the situation, explaining about the virus; its symptoms, how it is transmitted, the importance of regular hand washing and actions to take if they or a family member becomes ill. We made sure not to impose unnecessary worry while ensuring they understood the need to be conscious of the spread and possible severity of the virus, sending them all home with soaps to use.
The center will remain a port of contact for any families in need of help or assistance and continue to carry out food drops. These will be even more important now that many businesses and jobs are closing or disappearing due to Covid-19 protocols, meaning many families will find themselves in desperate situations. We send our love to everyone and hope for a speedy end to these difficult times.
