Second Quarter of 2021

Clean water is essential to a family's good health
Clean water is essential to a family's good health

Though we in Cambodia had been relatively lucky in the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, this second year has been completely different with the emergence of the Delta Variant's arrival in Cambodia. We have been locked down, and we have been locked out from having access to any of our boats after our port of call -- Kompong Khleang -- was declared a "red zone".

We have done what we have always done. We made adjustments. We adapted. Whether it is the now unpredictable water depths in the Tonle Sap Lake, or the tempermental nature of a boat's engine, we have always found a way to continue working to provide free health care, health education and healthy family development despite the difficulties.

In this Second Quarter of 2021 The Lake Clinic:

  • Held 83 clinics.
  • And treated 2,798 cases of disease and injury.
  • Provided health education, primarily COVID, to 1,589 individuals.
  • 259 vaccinations for early childhood illnesses
  • 111 Mental Health visits.
  • and more!

Final Report

Our campaign for the funding of one month's fuel costs has been a success!! We would like to thank everyone whose contributions made this possible.

The logistics of transporting materials and staff to the remote areas that we serve on a weekly basis are not easy, nor are they inexpensive. Without diesel for our land vehicles and diesel for out small fleet of boats we could not provide the services that we do.

Thus far in 2021- January through May - we have provided 5,311 services. That's an average of 1,062 services each month, and so this project has assisted us to provide each of these services  for only about $1.00 each in transportation costs.

For everyone who had helped, we say "Thank YOU!", and we ask that your generosity continues by looking at our other projects here at GlobalGiving. We appreciate everyone and every donation.

Thank you.

The First Quarter of 2021

The Lake Clinic - Cambodia is very thankful to everyone who is helping us to stay afloat financially through these trying times. We had been fortunate that Cambodia had been spared from the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic; that is until the end of February 2021. COVID-19 is now here and in Thailand as well as other SouthEast Asian countries. Cambodia's health infrastructure is stressed. Schools are being used as quarantine centers. Wedding halls and convention centers have been turned into hospitals.

Travel between provinces has been problematic, but fortunately TLC's reputation with the Ministry of Health and our Provincial Health Department partners has allowe our staff to travel when and where necessary. So far our efforts to both teach and practice the necessary precautions against the spread of COVID-19 have been successful with no one from TLC or any of our communities being exposed.

In this First Quarter of 2021 The Lake Clinic provided 10,781 clinical services across the nine villages that we serve. We were also able to provide health screening and health education to 254 school children.

This is only possible with your continued support.
