With good health, people can live life to the fullest.
That’s why we work with communities to provide access to clean water, improve sanitation and hygiene, reduce malnutrition and prevent diseases. We have health projects in countries including Cambodia, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste.
Theakong is a mother in rural Cambodia. But with few work opportunities and compounding financial struggles, the family was constantly battling sickness due to unsanitary living conditions.
“We were doing open defecations,” says Theakong. “We didn’t have a water filter or clean water to drink. We got diseases – vomiting, diarrhoea, coughing.”
When an ADRA project began in Theakong’s village, she was eager to participate. Theakong faithfully attended workshops, learning new skills about animal raising, gardening techniques and how to practice good hygiene. ADRA also provided Theakong with a water filter and latrine. And she has witnessed her family’s health drastically improve.
“Since we received a latrine and a water filter our family is better,” says Theakong. “ADRA brought change to my family. Our kids could have good health and they are able to go to school. It’s better than before.”
The Best CHOICES project in Cambodia is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP).
