A little bit of context
The Pursat Province is a culturally rich region of rural Cambodia. The communities have longstanding traditions and close knit families that rely on accessibility to rural resources in order to thrive.
But there’s a problem
Due to the horrifying genocide events of the mid-late 19070's, much of Cambodia lost its healthcare and public health infrastructure. Without open or consistent access to public health resources and ongoing medical care, the rural communities rely on foreign aid to provide short term solutions to health & wellness. Among the health related issues is the lack of nutritional services including food scarcity interventions, nutrition programs, and nutritional health education. Without access to proper foods and ongoing health education, rural Cambodian communities face nutritionally preventable diseases and illnesses.
What we're going to do
We are going to bring health assessments & nutritional education programs to the rural areas of the Pursaat Province.
But we aren't stopping there.
Cambodians don't need another short term solution. They need support to rebuild the infrastructure of their health systems and to do that they need long term solutions.
With the help of a nutritional foundation, we will bring critical nutritional health and feeding practice interventions to rural communities by interfacing with the next generation & future of Cambodia: the children. This program will provide malnourishment testing, healthy eating & feeding education to caregivers, nutritional interventions for disabled children and direct access to certified nutritionists. These resources will be used independent of our organization for long term nutrition goals within the community.
You can join us
We are raising $7,000 dollars which will go directly to the nutrition and health education intervention for the rural Cambodian communities. All donations are essential to reaching our goal but your donation matters and will help get us one step closer to providing this service. Can we count you in?
