22 April 2021, Happy International Mother Earth Day!
This year more than ever before, we want to play our part at Klang Leu in saving our beautiful planet. By reducing our waste, ensuring less pollution and encouraging a healthier eco-system, we have been making a difference to the environment and to our community too.
Simple efforts like us offering every child at Klang Leu the opportunity to refill their water bottle whenever they need to will reduce the amount of plastic waste by more than 2,000 plastic bottles per year.
We have also installed a compost bin and are working hard to diversify in the fruits and vegetables grown in our vegetable garden. These are easy ways the team at Klang Leu can go green.
As our children still haven’t been able to return to school nor to the Centre due to the rise of Covid-19 cases in Cambodia, more time has been spent in the garden and what an impact it has made! Our team is busy preparing dozens of healthy lunch boxes with home grown produce for our children on a daily basis.
Some news updates from last month:
Covid-19 in Cambodia: general lockdown, quarantine, curfew and food
Since 24 February, the number of Covid-19 cases have sadly risen throughout Cambodia resulting in all centres and daycare centres including Klang Leu having to close for 2 months. All group gatherings are banned.
Despite, no detected cases in our neighbourhood nor amongst the families we support, the Government’s protection and social distancing measures are still being enforced together with strict quarantine and lockdown regulations. This has had a dramatic impact on our community.
In Cambodia, hunger is worse than Covid-19! One extra ton of rice is
distributed in a few days!
Unfortunately, the impact of the pandemic has led to many local families not having enough food to eat. As well as our team preparing daily healthy lunch boxes for children visiting the Centre, they have also been distributing vital food more widely to needy families.
An additional 27 families living in extreme poverty in Klang Leu have been supported with essential food being shared. A staggering 1 ton of rice has been distributed in just a few days!
This is where we need your support NOW to feed more children and their families who can’t afford to meet their basic needs.
Every donation, whatever the amount, will make a huge difference!
