The fragility of life and security became very apparent to us this week when one of the families in our Sustainable Community Project lost everything in a fire. Their house, clothes, treasured belongings, all of the official documents required to receive any government services, food, absolutely everything. The local authority, through Red Cross, donated food and some money towards building a shelter.
Rice For Cambodia, on behalf of our sponsors have donated money to purchase school uniforms, school supplies, and some essential household goods. We will continue to monitor the welfare of this family through our partner Life and Hope Association. Any support you may consider would be very welcome by this family in dire need. Remember to be thankful every day for the comfortable life we live.
