Our Nurse Practitioner, Lisa Reid, is heading over to Cambodia for a few days later this year, to provide medical care and education to vulnerable orphans. As part of this trip she is also fundraising for money to purchase medical supplies for the charity, so that this isn't a barrier to effective care. We're proud that she's able to use her expertise in this way, and we're making a contribution towards this fundraising via her givealittle page.
From her page:
In the 1970s, the Khmer Rouge genocide killed one quarter of the Cambodian population. They targeted anyone with an education, killing teachers, artists, nurses, doctors, and more.
Today, the children in Battambang still feel the effects of this tragedy. Living in a community still coping with trauma, a community where caretakers are unable to guarantee them a safe and healthy childhood, these kids are forced to grow up too quickly. Children as young as five leave home to work in the fields or factories. Girls as young as seven lured into the sex trade.
Children’s Future exists to help this community heal, one child, one family at a time.
