Thank you for the donations to our project in Cambodia, sadly we only made $45 but don't fear every penny of this $45 went to our rural community clinic in Cambodia and it helped someone with urgent medication they needed so it has changed a life.
Fundraising is getting difficult with high prices rising and less support due to lack of funds, we fully understand the issues people face and therefore we have decided to merge this project with our healthcare program in Cambodia so we can pull resources together to ensure we maximise our long term sustainable impact.
We thank you for your donation and support and even though this project is coming to an end we have not stopped our work or mission and we will continue to help everyone access medical care when they need it the most across Cambodia
Action Change have recently moved to a new hard to reach community in Cambodia after our last communiy had been given the resources to be self sustainable in the fight against access to medical care.
As we move to this new community we see that post COVID this community has fallen through the cracks and have no central governmental support or services. With the medical centre over 50Kms away they have nothing available to them.
As we kick off the project we are working with all community members to review what skills are in the community and looking at what medical professional support needs to be made available to the community. As an initial plan we would love to raise enough funds so we can have have weekly visits from a GP, dentist, family planning consultant, sexual health outreach program along with many other awareness campaigns to help educate and support the community.
Dental and medical care is typically reserved for the middle class, due to the expense involved. Our students have therefore typically never been to a dentist or doctor's before and understand little of the risks in not brushing your teeth or washing your hands.
We want to provide hygiene kits to all of our students and teach them how to use this and why it is important. Moreover, we want to extend our reach to children of the community who are not our students. All community members lack the awareness, knowledge and resources involved in basic hygiene so we would like to extend this initiative as much as possible into the community.
