The CHOICES for Children project focuses on improving health outcomes for 60 rural communities in the Bakan district in western Cambodia. The project supports communities to better address the risks of child malnutrition and improving their wellbeing. Parents and caregivers are trained and educated to make informed decisions about feeding practices, household hygiene and sanitation. The project also empowers food insecure families to have more sustained household livelihoods through extensive training.
40% of Cambodian children are chronically malnourished.
The average life expectancy for men is just 58, while for women it’s 64.
The CHOICES Project operates until 2019 before being reviewed for possible future phases. The total project support cost for this project is $2,526,445 and our annual fundraising target is $116,216. Every donation you make to this project will be combined with funding from the Australian government to reach more people. We have committed to contribute $1 for every $5 we receive from the Australian government. Your donation will allow us to extend our programs.
