COVID continuing its grip on our Rural Assistance Program

The  impact of COVID 19 continues to be felt throughout Cambodia.  Last April, Cambodia  was closed to entry by Americans and Europeans, making it impossible for Mark to visit and more importantly, making it impossible to  responsibily supervise the operations of our Rural Assistance Program. Consequently and most reluctantly,  we initiated a temporary suspension of our program.

Some months  later in  Fall of 2020 it appeared that Cambodia was seeming to be  ready to open back up. Now  a recent  and punishing  upward surge in COVID cases have  put our plans back on pause,

Cambodia,  since late February  2021, has  seen a surge in COVID cases. So much so, that the government  has ordered all schools to close and it  has imposed travel restrictions not  only in the cities, but also throughout the countryside, limiting travel from one province to another, making it impossible for us to properly run our program. 

Unlike the US, stay at home mandates are  being strictly enforced. Schools, businesses, markets and even the banks are closed and people are challenged on the streets for valid reasons  for them to be out and around. We had been hopeful that things would open up by now, but just yesterday, we learned that the stay at home order has been extended another week.

We remain on " pause" hoping that  conditions will begin to normalize. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience and your support during this difficult period.

Thank you,

 

Barbara & Mark Rosasco
