Dear supporters, As this project begins to come to a close, we are extremely proud to share with you the accomplishments of this campaign: 286 people (145 women; 15 men; 116 youths; 10 children) participated in the awareness talks on COVID 19 prevention, Family Planning, Financial Management, Gender Roles, and Leadership. 480 people received emergency food packages, such as rice, groceries, meats, eggs, and vegetables. 50 families received chicks, frogs, nets, fertilizer, and crops for their family Home Garden Project. Likewise, 169 people (mostly women) received counseling and referrals in 2021, which were mostly concerned with the rise of domestic violence during lockdowns, loss of jobs, and mental health concerns due to isolation. 73 women and girls received bycicles during this year as well. In 2021, 193 families benefited from COVID-19 Assistance through emergency packages and financial support, whilst we provided 182 counseling and referrals in the same year. 433 Bikes, emergency food packages and school materials distributed in 2022. The impact of the strict measures we had to take as a nation during Covid outlasted the pandemic itself, but we are proud to say that together, we have been able to respond in a heroic manner and continue to support those who are still affected, as Siem Reap's economy is only just starting to take off again.



Sreynich (Used another name for confidential purposes):

Before joining WRC's program, Sreynich, mother to a 4 year old girl, was living with her abusive, alcoholic husband. With the pandemic, she was exposed to him even for longer periods of time, and due to the isolation he became even more abusive. "I was so scared, I could not sleep at night".

She could not leave him as, because of Covid, she was not earning any income from her handcrafted items she used to sell to tourists. 

When a WRC's social worker reached out, she was able to get support and information on women's rights, as well as accessibility to the help of the local community council, reporting her case for legal support. She now lives with her daughter, as her partner was removed from the household and her community expanded, thus being able to get by financially as a single mother.

 Dear Friends, 


We are so proud of what we have done in the last three months. Our projects are thriving and additional support has been provided thanks to this campaign. 


We have, so far, provided:


202 food emergency packages for families in dire need. These packages contain non perishable foods like rice, oil, canned fish, cooking sauces, but also eggs. 


50 families, through home gardening support, received all the tools necessary to start their own self-sustainable gardens, planting vegetable seeds and raising chickens. 


Likewise, 106 study material packages were distributed to children in need so they can assist school and have better chances in life. 


We could not have done this without you. Thank you!

From the effort of our community outreach officers, 50 families were assessed and selected to be assisted through creating their own home gardens. 

Our officers learned about the families' needs, and after discussion, our team provided 50 families with home gardening materials including garden nets, chicken nets, chickens as vegetable seeds of eggplant, lettuce, chili, cucumber, pumpkin and morning glory.

We truly believe this is the most sustainable way to help feed these families. Not only we are providing them with food, but we are providing them with a garden that can feed them for hopefully years to come. 

 Thank YOU for being part of this impact.

Hello Friends!


Thank you for helping us provide Emergency Support to the families that most need it. 

During the month of April, WRC provided 20 food emergency packages. These emergency food packages contain all the essential nutritional items that are commonly found in Cambodian households, such as rice, soy sauce, fish sauce, oil, canned fish and other non perishable foods, powdered milk, and hygiene products. 

In May, we were excited to provide 75 bikes for young girls and women in need of transportation to go to school and/or work. So many women face difficulties and hardships getting to where they need or want to be, and we sincerely hope this helps increase their mobility. 

Some of these women and girls had to walk to work or school for an hour (and back) every day. They are grateful and so are we!


In love, gratitude and grace,

Dear Friends,

By supporting WRC in 2021, you've helped us reach 193 families in dire need. 

The city of Siem Reap went through a really difficult time, with very strict lockdowns and of course, many businesses going bankrupt leaving people unemployed. 

The families received continued food emergency support during the hit of covid-19 pandemic.

To make the help sustainable, we are helping these families get back on their feet also through other projects, such as Financial Literacy and Empowerment as well as Home gardening. 

We know that with your help, in 2022, we can help them get back on their feet!

With love,
