update on your donation supporting M'Lop Tapang

m
m'lop tapang's Baby Care Program

Hello from Cambodia!

I just wanted to thank you again for your donation in the past to help provide hot lunches for the disadvantaged children and youth that M’Lop Tapang works with. Because of your generosity hundreds of children that attend education and training programs here are getting the support they need to work towards having a better future.

Your gifts has also helped us to be able to provide nutritious meals to some of the youngest children we work with – those little ones in our Baby Care Program. The program provides day care for children that have been diagnosed with malnutrition or severe neglect. The infants and toddlers in the program receive supervised care, healthy food, hygiene and medical care.

One of the most recent children to join our Baby Care Program is little Champa*.

Champa is a 9-month old baby who was admitted in our Baby Care Program a couple of months ago with a diagnosis of severe malnutrition. She is the youngest of three children (all girls) living with a single parent mother in one of the poorest neighborhoods of Sihanoukville. Champa’s mother loves her children but is struggling with addiction problems, has no proper job, and lacks any social support. Since the children’s father left, Champa’s oldest sister dropped out of school to take care of the youngest siblings at home.

We met Champa when our doctors and nurses visited her village during one of the Medical Outreach trips. During the assessment we learned that because the family did not know better, little Champa had been raised on sugar water only and never received any nutritious food.

Under the care from our Baby Care Program staff and medical staff, in less than 20 days Champa had gained 1.4kg! We can see each week that she looks healthier and happier than when she was admitted to the program.

The Outreach staff and Medical Team continue to work with the mom to improve her parenting skills. We are also very happy to report that because Champa is in the Baby Care Program everyday now that her older sister has been able to return to school.

From all of us here at M'Lop Tapang, thank you again for joing us in helping to improve the lives of hundreds of children here in Cambodia.
