This project will support Cambodian Children's Fund's effort to protect the vulnerable community of Steung Meanchey from COVID-19 by providing hygiene and sanitation products and resources to students and families to ensure they are educated and updated regarding COVID-19, they remain safe and healthy, and to prevent the spread of the virus across vulnerable populations in Cambodia.
Cambodia has had over 100 confirmed cases of COVID-19, though the number of cases is feared to be higher as Cambodia has very limited access to tests and other resources. Local hospitals are under-resourced and underprepared for a large outbreak. In the densely populated impoverished area of Steung Meanchey, precautions need to be taken to prevent the spread of the virus immediately to protect the vulnerable population living here.
In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Cambodia and protect a vulnerable community who would be most greatly impacted by an outbreak, personal hygiene and sanitization supplies would be distributed. This project would fund: - Alcohol-based hand sanitizer for each student - Hand soap for each student - Face masks for each student - COVID-19 Information packs and posters to be posted and distributed - Call center for sharing information and updates of COVID-19
This project will prevent the spread of COVID-19 in one of Cambodia's most vulnerable communities by educating the community on safety precautions & sanitary procedures and will increase the likelihood that if anyone is infected, they may quickly access the isolated treatment necessary. If done right, our programs will be able to resume, & focus on our mission of transforming some of Cambodia's most impoverished children into tomorrow's leaders and empowering the next generation out of poverty.
