Our recent work in Cambodia has focused on meeting local community leaders and running community health education talks. These gatherings focus on teaching the basics on health, nutrition, hygiene, disease prevention and basic care of the ill and injured. Counselling people who have lost family members, or counselling those who are seriously ill has also been a part of this work. Many mothers were able to come and receive simple, advisory health care about women’s health or about their children.
Heartfelt Hope would like to see this work continue and expand as they explore what other opportunities may be available within this area of Kratie Province. Like our community work within Uganda, we are also assessing what other programmes or projects can be implemented to bring about healthy change and fresh hope to those in rural areas.
