COVID KEEPS US ON HOLD

COVID continues to keep our Rural Assistance Program on hold. 

Our reports earlier this year have  detailed how the COVID 19 virus created severe travel restrictions making it impossible  to run this program without the assurances and safeguards  that  our  personal  supervision and  close staff support provide.   This type of monitoring  has always  been a critical element of our program and we feel that it has been key to our success  and  our ability to achieve so many of our goals over the past 20 years. Unlike our programs in  Phnom Penh , we do not have locally placed staff in the countryside  that are of the caliber needed  to oversee the operations of the entire program. Although this has always been a  challenge,Mark’s frequent  on-site visits to review  our projects were essential to monitor and maintain  efficient use of our limited  resources.

Cambodia remains substantially closed down,  with schools and many business closed.  Tourism and business travel  is at a near  standstill, with most attempts of international  travel impractical due to the 14 day quarantine requirement on visitors. The massive  wave of the Delta variant of Covid in Thailand, at the present time,  seriously  impacts transit from /through Thailand to Cambodia. Consequently,  we must  reluctantly  continue the “ pause” of  our   current operations of our Rural Assistance Program as we wait for COVID to subside.

We are deeply grateful to you for your understanding during these challenging times.
