BENEFITING: KASUMISOU FOUNDATION
Make a difference!
Sponsor the “ Malnutrition, Therapy and Play Room ” at the Phnom Penh Municipal Orphanage.
This is home for the most medically fragile children at the Orphanage who require specialized nutritional and other support for their survival. We provide for 2 full time caregivers who rotate to be on duty 24/7. We also have 3 part time helpers who come 5 days per week to play with, hold and provide individual attention to the children. The budget for this entire team is just $ 500 per month or $ 6,000 per year.
Why is this important :
We feel that our support team greatly enhances the quality of life for these fragile children.
The Municipal Orphanage is chronically underfunded and it recently lost a long time European NGO partner. This meant that although these fragile kids would continue to receive basic care like food and diaper changes, there were extremely few minutes for 1:1 contact, individual play or even simple touch. Without your support, some of these kids would remain bedbound and receive only essential care.
