Flooding in Cambodia Continues…

October 18, 2011

Flooding continues to devastate provinces in Cambodia.
Over 200 people have died in the flooding in Cambodia after the Mekong River flooded its banks from heavy rainfall.   The water has not receded and is causing illness and property devastation throughout the area.  A Cambodian ambassador indicated that 15 towns have been destroyed including the roads to and around them as well as all the farm land.  Fortunately, China, the U.S., and Kuwait are providing some much needed aid to help the flood victims.

We are thankful for the news that CCEdFund’s students remain safe and healthy.  We will continue to check in on their safety and the progress of the cleanup efforts.  The Director of one of our partner organizations sent the picture to the right, with  a view of the river in Siem Reap from the roof of the children’s center.
