In the Mean Chey slums of Phnom Penh, many children don’t get enough to eat. They may be hungry, but an even more serious problem than the hunger is the associated risk of malnourishment, which may cause serious illness (now or later) and may limit their physical and mental development.
Some of this is caused by lack of resources and some by lack of understanding in families of how to make the best of the little that they have.
TASK provide nourishing food to those most in need, but also provide classes for mothers of newborn babies and children to demonstrate how they can use what they have to provide better nutrition for themselves and their families. This work is hugely appreciated in the families and wider community, and can mean the difference between a healthy full life or a life of continual illness.
These projects are very much ‘within the community’, led by people who understand the situation and who are available for advice. Hundreds of children have been helped in this way.
Your gift of any amount will help us help more of Cambodia's malnourished poor children.
