The flash floods of last Sunday in Siem Reap coupled with heavy rain at the beginning of the week have badly affected many of the marginalized communities and vulnerable families that our Kaliyan Mith program works with in that area.
At the moment 34 families from 10 communities are very seriously affected by the flooding and are receiving food and other support from our teams, with 9 persons displaced by the floods taking refuge in one of our centers. These numbers will almost certainly increase as our teams are still trying to reach other communities cut off by the floods, and there is a growing likelihood of further flooding in the coming days.
Our program activities have also been severely disrupted, with our Training and Education centers in Siem Reap having to close. We hope to reopen these as soon as possible.
