Greetings from Sustainable Cambodia!
2020 has been a difficult year for people all over the world. We hope this writing finds you and your family in good health.
So far, Cambodia has been spared the worst from COVID-19. According to the Cambodian Ministry of Health, there have been 278 cases and no deaths. And to our great joy, there are no cases to-date in Pursat Province.
Because of the extensive travel restrictions that are reported to last until after the new year, our annual trips to visit Cambodia have been put on hold. As we get more information we will keep you informed.
Cambodia has closed restaurants and bars, cancelled large celebrations, and has cancelled school through November. Although classes have been suspended, our teachers are still at work. Their goals is to keep all of our students engaged during the pandemic and bring them back to our classrooms when appropriate.
Despite the pandemic, SC projects are still ongoing. We are starting work on our new Rotary Global Grant (we will do a story on the grant at a later date) and we want to thank the Rotary Clubs of Southampton, Rotary Club Locust Valley, Rotary Club of Hampton Bays, Sayville, and Rotary Club of Glen Cove in New York for their hard work getting this grant together.
We want to thank you for your continued support! We hope that you and your family are healthy and happy as we traverse this difficult time.
