1) Fundraising to raise awareness of the need to help the poorest elderly in Cambodia.
2) These women and men have very little to hope for & many years of sadness and neglect. We want to improve their self-esteem & bring happiness to them.
3) Many healthcare issues
4) Teaching them so they can become more self sufficient (gardening, hygiene, etc.)
These are ongoing needs so you are always welcome.
Minimum stay would be one week but to be more effective we would recommend 2 to 4 weeks.
Accommodation and meals provided as well as transportation to and from the project site.
Basic spending money if you want to do some sightseeing or if you need to buy special foods because of dietary needs or you prefer Western food rather than Asian food.
Please help bring awareness of the needs of the poorest elderly in Cambodia.
To see the poorest elderly being loved and cared for, having self-respected, physical, mental and spiritual needs are looked after, basic needs are met, restore and uphold their value, giving them hope and happiness in the latter years of their life.
Cambodia has no social welfare programs and almost no other NGO helping the poorest elderly - especially outside of Phnom Penh. We specifically help those who have no one to support them and especially if they have grandchildren that have been left in their care. Please help us reach this elderly who are in such desperate needs.
It is very difficult to send things to Cambodia. We need basic over-the-counter medicines such as aspirin, multi-vitamins, creams. They urgently need essentials too (pots, pans, clothes, etc.). Donations can be made here: http://www.newdaynewlife.ngo/donate.html
