DDMSWCF Offers Care and Relief to Flood Victims in Cambodia
Following comprehensive assessments of the Northwest districts of Cambodia which recently experienced devastating flooding, DDM Social Welfare and Charity Foundation (DDMSWCF) responded quickly to bring some relief to the flood victims in the region.
On 22 November, 2011, and working in collaboration with the Red Cross Society of Siem Reap and the Cambodia branch of the Field Relief Agency of Taiwan, the DDMSWCF relief team arrived in Cambodia and soon after, began its distribution of relief goods in the Siem Reap and the Sisophon provinces, Northwest of the capital of Phnom Penh.
The relief goods including rice, salt, blankets and mosquito tents were delivered to 5,000 households devastated by the floods. Both the victims and the local government were greatly appreciative of this quick and responsive humanitarian effort of the DDMSWCF.
