Help for Those in Need
As many of you are aware the latest Covid-19 outbreak and the subsequent lock-downs have made life very difficult for certain sectors of Cambodian society. The financial impact on many vulnerable and disadvantaged communities has been significant, making it difficult for families to access the most basic of day-to-day necessities.
Auscham is launching a Covid-19 relief fund to assist these vulnerable communities.
We have done our research and will partner with the following 3 trusted agencies:
Friends International: The organization is providing 250 meals, twice a day to at risk families in Phnom Penh, many of whom were struggling before Covid-19. The majority of the families they are assisting are known to the organization. Through word-of-mouth many more families are turning to the organization for food assistance. Each meal cost Riel 5,000.
M’Lop Tapang: The organization has 17 years of experience working in the Sihanoukville area, providing services for vulnerable Cambodia children and families. They need funding help to provide emergency food supplies for children and families living in poverty who have been further impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
A standard monthly emergency food package is provided for approximately 75 Cambodian families and their children living in the Sihanoukville area.
Local4Local: They prioritize helping street vendors, and supporting cyclo drivers and street dwellers, and families in the Red zones of Steung Meanchey area, whom are in need of support during the lockdown. Through their fundraised efforts they have extended their support to assist Cambodian Children’s Fund, (Auscham member), supporting 300 families. Each family receives 10kg of rice, 10 packs of noodles, 5 canned fish, 1 soy sauce, 1 fish sauce, 1 salt, and 10 face mask.
We will endeavour to match members’ donations dollar-for-dollar. Details of amounts raised and donated will be made fully available to members.
