We have been doing everything we can to make sure the older children moving to the landfill have a chance to begin or continue their education. As you can imagine, many of the older children are reluctant to attend school for the first time as they are embarrassed about having to start in kindergarten or first grade. Our solution? We’ve opened a special “catch-up class” for older kids so they could learn with their peers.

Delivering Hope to Hungry Villages

At the start of this week’s Emergency Food Relief campaign, and over the last 18 months of the pandemic, we have shared stories of the many children and families in our country program locations who are desperate for food. The heartwrenching circumstances have been our motivation to continue doing all that we possibly can to help, and it is the reason we set our most recent and ambitious goal of raising $75,000 to help those in urgent need of nutrition.

Many people in the US and around the world know what it’s like to have to suddenly quarantine because of a positive case of COVID or a close contact exposure. As cases continue to surge in certain parts of the world, families again are being forced to quarantine. In places like Cambodia, a positive test result or close contact with a known COVID case requires individuals to immediately shelter in place.
