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.

Solution

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

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.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
