One of the women we are supporting with seeds
I hope this finds you well.
Here in Siem Reap we continue to support the women and families that need food and hygiene supplies thanks to your donations. We have around 50 families a month currently being supported. Some of these families are new to us each month and some are families who need ongoing support as they look for work, or for some reason they cannot work.
In addition we are supporting families with seeds, chicks and frogs so they can grow and raise their own food and have a potential income stream if there is additional food left over. In October we were delighted to be able to add a further 20 new families to this program.
One of the women we support wanted to share that 'I was very stressed with no income and no food to eat, but now because of these vegetables I don't need to buy them from the market. We would like to thank you WRC and supporters for your kindness and we wish you all the best wishes,'
We continue to support women and their families with workshops and counselling sessions throughout this time, and mainly do this online so we limit bringing people together in groups due to the current safety concerns around COVID-19.
Thank you for all your support which has allowed us to help the women in Siem Reap through 2020!
