In the previous article, we have spoken about KCD’s awareness on hygiene campaign as a part of immediate response to the new threats brought by COVID-19. Today we will have a look at how KCD is addressing issues of food and economic security during the pandemic.
It is well known that the virus has resulted in an economic crisis around the world. For Prek Chrey this issue has also become crucial. As many businesses closed, many people in the community have lost their jobs. Siv also mentions that, as many ethnic Vietnamese depend on foods that they bring from the market in Vietnam, closing the border has threatened their food and economic security. Therefore, people had to search for alternative ways of income generation and ensuring their food security. Read more “COVID-19 response: Part 2. Food and Economic Security.”
The year 2020 has brought new challenges to humanity. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all the spheres of human lives. Even though the situation in Cambodia is relatively safe, the country has also suffered from the virus. It is especially visible in rural communities where people have limited opportunities for access to information and income generation. On 6th June we went to our target area in Prek Chrey commune to speak with KCD field staff and some beneficiaries to reflect on our activities related to response to COVID-19.

We have called all our Phnom Penh staff back from the field in order to avoid any kind of misunderstanding, canceled all the activities that require numbered participants and are now revising our strategies to respond to the situation.
We urge all our staff, beneficiaries, stakeholders and partners to stay safe and take measures to prevent the spread of infection.
We are deeply concerned about the spread of fake news about the virus in social networks, therefore, we have decided to take action to provide true information to everyone interested. Please find time to check and subscribe to our Facebook page to access the accurate information and latest updates about our work.
Keep Calm and Stay Safe!
