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.

Emergency Food Relief for Buyange Village

Ever since the pandemic began, LWB has been providing emergency food relief to vulnerable children in the regions where we work. This past month, we distributed essential food supplies in the Namatumba district of Eastern Uganda.  This region has seen frequent episodes of severe hunger and childhood malnutrition and was hit last year by devastating hailstorms which destroyed hundreds of homes. Our team was determined to get critical food supplies to as many children in the Buyange village as possible. Bags of rice, beans, and corn flour were loaded onto trucks, and our team began the three-hour journey into the countryside.

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.

Cambodia: Part Five

Over the last few days I have shared part of my experiences from Cambodia and some of the real challenges that impoverished children face in this region of the world.  While some of the issues are similar to those we face in China (malnutrition, lack of medical care, “left behind” children fending for themselves), others are critical problems we haven’t faced before.  I know most of us have read about the atrocities of child sex trafficking, but to hear the stories in person and to learn that many of the families I met have been impacted in some way was truly sobering.
