We are raising funds to provide COVID-19 specific hygiene training to community members in rural Siem Reap, Cambodia. The sad reality is, many of our community members don’t know how to adequately protect themselves against this virus, or have the funds to purchase soap for their families.
Our program partners, Human and Hope Association, have been running hygiene workshops in their community for eight years. This has created a trust with their community who will happily attend their workshops.
Their new COVID-19 workshops will provide official information from the World Health Organisation. This includes:
- Protecting yourself
- Shopping and working in wet markets
- Practising food safety and;
By presenting this information in an informative and engaging way, their community will be empowered to remain calm but informed during pandemics. Each participant will receive a 500ml bottle of liquid soap, which is a luxury but necessity for families living in poverty to prevent disease.
In the long-term, this project will instill lasting knowledge about virus prevention into the community, so they are well-equipped to live long and healthy lives.
Thank you for your support!
