Improving the Health of Children in Cambodia

$8,214 $46,786
Raised Remaining


To help abandoned children, many afflicted with HIV/AIDS, and children with mental health problems. We want to address lack of food, medicine and staff training.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Our beneficiaries will be orphaned children suffering from AIDS/HIV and other diseases and children with mental health problems whose parents do not know how to cope because they were deprived of family experiences by the forced separations of the Pol Pot regime. At the Nutrition Center in Phnom Penh, we will help urban orphans from brothels and hospitals that have abandoned them. At the Child Mental Health Center, we will help families, largely the working poor, from all over Cambodia.

How will this project solve this problem?

To fund the training of health professionals including nurses, psychologists, and social workers, and buy medicine and equipment.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will help improve the mental and physical health of orphaned children in Cambodia. This project will also ensure the sustainability of the Nutrition Center in Child Mental Health Center.
