We hope all is well with you and yours as we all navigate these challenging times. We want to send out our appreciation for the support we have received to assist children and families facing extreme poverty following the outbreak of COVID-19 in Cambodia. For the third month, we have been able to assist the 81 families in our sponsorship programs. Some people are able to go back to work part-time at the brick factories; however they still have barely enough to feed their families.
By providing much needed food, formula and medicine to those that have lost most or all of their incomes and have no safety net, we are helping them to get the basics in order to maintain basic health. The families and kids are very appreciative and their smiles show their gratitude.
This little boy lost his mother after she gave birth to him last year (she taught for K.I.D.S. evening English/Food program). The family lost almost everything trying to save her life. We continue to support him to live with his grandparents and father. Thanks to K.I.D.S. supporters, he remains healthy and happy.
It is inspiring to see kids doing bottle drives and yoga teachers donate yoga classes to help children. Thanks to everyone who has donated to assist these hard-working people, who are trying their very best to feed and care for their families.
Our hearts go out to everyone around the world who is suffering and it is good to see that hope and kindness are alive and well!!!
Wishing you and yours all the best.
Until next time,
Adrianne and Rick
