Clean water is essential to good health!
There will be a nearly universal sigh of relief echoing around the world as 2020 comes to an end, and though the end is still a few days away it is a good time to reflect upon the work and the progress that The Lake Clinic - Cambodia has accomplished even in these troubling times.
The final numberss are not in yet. The deadline for this report arrives earlier than our official "end of the year", but you can be proud of what TLC has done--even with an enforced "slow down" in April and May of this year. As of this writing, TLC has held 300 clinics across the 9 villages that we serve in both Siem Reap and Kompong Thom Provinces. TLC's Clinical Team has treated more than 16,000 cases, and our Outreach Team has made almost 5,000 visits to homes, and has conducted health education (of course COVID-19 has been a constant topic) for families, mothers and separate educational sessions for teenagers.
