Hello from lockdown in Cambodia!

You may have heard that Cambodia is in a dire situation right now as Covid-19 cases continue to rise.  We were very lucky last year with so few cases, but that has all changed in the last while.  When we started 2021 there had only been 374 confirmed cases and 0 deaths.  As of May 02, there have now been 14,520 confirmed cases and 103 deaths.

Last week, Sihanoukville became the second city in Cambodia to designate a “red zone,” putting five zones under stringent lockdown measures for 14 days with immediate effect There was no notice so families could not prepare.  Only those individuals with government issued special permission cards are allowed to travel in and out of red zones.

A small group of M’Lop Tapang staff (all of whom tested negative for COVID-19) have now received government issued permission cards allowing them to travel and visit families in the community.  This team has managed to deliver emergency food supply packages to 178 vulnerable families with children in the last few days and will continue to reach even more families in the upcoming weeks.

Your donations are helping us to do this and we wanted to thank you for that. There are so many Cambodian families struggling right now and we are grateful for your support in making sure that these families and children are getting the emergency supplies they need right now during this crisis.

Take care. Stay safe.
