Community Support for Lockdown

Sadly the spread of Covid is getting worse in Cambodia and many areas are now on strict lockdown, including some of the families in our Community.

Having to quarantine in your own home is hard enough for all of us, but for our poorer families the reality means sharing one very small room between everyone. There is no separate space to isolate the contaminated person.

On top of this, is the fear of no income at all, rendering you unable to feed your family.

This is a reality that many of our families are now facing.

To help alleviate some of this stress, we have been arranging large community food drops to ensure the families have some food they can depend on.

An alcohol ban has also been imposed, and while this may mean we miss the odd end of the day beer, it also limits drinking in the home, which often leads to increased levels of domestic violence.

The government are trying to wrestle back control of the virus so we must all hope for a swift and safe recovery.

Our fundraising push is going well so far and we are nearing 50% of our needed total. If you have not donated yet, please consider doing so.

Thank you for your support!
