The Best CHOICES Project, standing for Best Community Household Opportunities through Improved Community Empowered Solutions, 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).


Improving health and wellbeing – How is ADRA helping?

Cambodia is one of many countries where ADRA is helping to improve the health and wellbeing of communities. We have ongoing health projects that have been developed in collaboration with trusted partners and communities to build healthier lives. Examples of ADRA health project activities include:

– Improving access to safe water sources
– Providing hygiene and sanitation solutions
– Implementing waste management strategies
– Helping families access nourishing food
– Preventing, addressing, and combatting non-communicable diseases like diabetes
– Supporting pregnant women and mothers with maternal and infant health and nutrition
– Improving awareness on issues like domestic violence and sexual abuse against women, children, and others
– Providing psychosocial support as per identified need

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.”
