Emergency Food Relief Comes To A Flooded Region of Cambodia

As if the pandemic wasn’t enough to worry about right now, Cambodia has experienced massive flooding this past month. Tens of thousands of impoverished families have seen their homes and crops submerged. After meeting with the Cambodian government’s Orphans and Vulnerable Children taskforce, we immediately got to work delivering essential food supplies to impacted children and families in Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, and Pursat provinces. Over 8,000 pounds of food supplies were delivered last weekend alone.

Unity Update: Selia, Bella, and Pete

Recently, seven-year-old Selia was taken to the hospital with pneumonia and could not easily recover. Doctors told her concerned family that she had a VSD heart defect that needed repair. The hospital told the family about our Unity Initiative, a program to help impoverished families remain together by funding medical care. Next, a generous supporter of our Unity Initiative funded Selia’s heart surgery, and she arrived at the hospital yesterday to prepare for surgery.

Remote Learning in Cambodia

When Cambodia made the decision to temporarily shutter its schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government suggested that all learning go online. There was one major problem for the regions where LWB works, however. The majority of children in these rural villages don’t even have access to electricity, no less the internet. Our passionate teachers were committed to making sure the children’s lessons continued. Now, each day they travel by bicycle, and motorbike, often on mud-soaked dirt roads, to deliver paper learning packets and in-person instruction to even the most remote households.

Emergency Food Relief Update: Cambodia

Delivery of emergency food rations continues in Cambodia. Thanks to generous donations from our community, our team on the ground in Cambodia has been delivering critical supplies such as rice and fish oil to families who have lost their income during the pandemic. We’re also delivering soap to help prevent the virus. We wanted to share just a few of their stories with you to illustrate how these donations have helped us meet the immediate needs of families in the region we serve.

Introducing Twins Lizzie and Sawyer

Twins Sawyer and Lizzie were born late last summer. After their parents were no longer able to care for them, they entered our Cambodia Foster Care program when they were three months old along with their older brothers Henry and Howard. Although Sawyer is the first-born of the twins, Lizzie has him beat on size. We love her extra baby rolls!

Emergency Food Relief

This week, LWB launched an Emergency Food Relief drive in response to the COVID-19 crisis around the world, as so many children in the locations where we work are going hungry. The situation has become critical for many severely impoverished families, who even before the pandemic were only just surviving as day laborers. Now under lock-down orders, these vulnerable families have no ability to purchase food for their children.

Safe Haven Foster Care: Pandemic Update

Love Without Boundaries’ Safe Haven foster care program works in the field of anti-trafficking.  We are so grateful to all of our supporters who make this important program of refuge possible.  It’s a real comfort to know that all of the children in this program are being cared for safely at their foster homes during the global pandemic. While the schools are currently closed, the education of the children in our Safe Haven foster care program is still going strong. Thanks to donors’ generosity, all students in our program went home with activity books, paper, pencils, and anything else we could source.

Swim Day for Cambodia Foster Care

Every quarter, the children in our Cambodia foster care program head to the swimming pool for a much-anticipated Swim Day. The children in our foster care programs, who range in age from 1 to 14 years old, have known true hardship. All of the children in this program have sadly experienced trauma, and we know the importance of physical activity to benefit mental health. Swim Day allows the children to be with siblings, friends and foster families in a safe and fun environment, and get to play as kids should.

“Let it Grow” at Sokhem Village

When LWB first began working in rural Sokhem Village, Cambodia in 2016, over 80% of the children there suffered from chronic malnutrition. Since that time, we’ve implemented an ongoing nutrition project to ensure that every child in the village who needs additional support can receive a healthy breakfast and lunch through our Believe in Me school program.
