Join me on one of my evening walks around the villages where the children and families of CCF live.
Since day one, these visits to the community were driven by a desperate need to get these children off the toxic garbage dump and into a safe place, into school and give them the care they deserved. These daily visits helped me to understand the struggles and plan interventions to address the needs of everyone there.
The garbage dump closure in 2009 brought a degree of relief and a new set of challenges. The appalling life on the dumpsite was gone but many families were without any source of income, bringing new problems with increased debt for parents and a new vulnerability for the youngest children.
I'll be answering all your questions live with students, families and grannies by my side.

This year has been particularly hard, and the lockdown of the area meant I could not easily visit the children and families when they were most in need.
Zoning measures were introduced to stem the spread of COVID-19. Red Zones were for areas at the highest risk of transmission, which had shown no sign of slowing. Five areas nationwide were given Red Zone status.
Steung Meanchey was most severely hit with three of the five Red Zone areas. CCF’s schools, along with areas where all CCF children, families, and grannies live, were in Red Zones.
