Cambodia

Best CHOICES works with vulnerable families in 50 communities in rural Cambodia, where people experience poor maternal and child nutrition as well as child exploitation. Because many vulnerable people in Pursat Province are financially insecure and are exploited for their labour, our project helps participants to make safe decisions about labour migration, personal health, non-communicable diseases, hygiene, waste management and livelihoods.

This project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP).

40% of Cambodian children are chronically malnourished.

The average life expectancy for men is just 58, while for women it’s 64.

Theakong’s Story

“We were doing open defecations,” says Theakong, a mother in Cambodia. “We didn’t have a water filter or clean water to drink. We got diseases – vomiting, diarrhoea, coughing.”

When an ADRA project began in her village, Theakong faithfully attended workshops. She learned 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.”
