Flood Relief Update- Reducing disease risk for children

Yesterday was a busy day!

The children's dry haven at JWOC was bustling with 63 coming for lunch. The team of staff and volunteers worked well together to get everyone fed and watered.
Getting set up for lunch, each child receives rice, a meat and vegetable dish plus soup and water.


Lots of children's lunches means lots of washing up; Sokha has been great in dealing with the extra work.


As well as all the activities at the dry haven, there was also distribution in Veal and Tropeang Ses villages. Here each of the 156 households received a bottle of liquid antiseptic and enough water purification tablets for 200 litres. It was a difficult mission with the villages still flooded and rain still falling.

Volunteer Sokpheak delivers the supplies to a family.


As the team distribute the items they also explain why and how to use them.

More disease reducing items going out to families that need them.


Thank you to everyone who has already donated to make this work possible.
