Community Support

New Hope Cambodia provides emergency help to the poor communities from which our students come.

 

The target areas where New Hope Cambodia’s students come from are underdeveloped. Our school provides emergency assistance to the communities when required. Some examples might be:

  • emergency supplies of rice to those in critical need, including the elderly and New Hope Cambodia’s students and families.
  • provision of basic household goods such as mosquito nets, mats, tarpaulins and cooking utensils for those who have absolutely no way of supporting themselves.
  • building new homes for destitute families who have no safe place to reside.
  • renovating existing houses to ensure that they are able to provide adequate protection from the elements.
  • building basic toilets, wells, and installing or upgrading water filters for homes and villages to reduce the risk of disease and infection.

New Hope Cambodia also runs a volunteer project providing community support and welcomes volunteers who help with distribution of goods, or building of houses and toilets for families in critical need (see our Volunteer page).
