The great news is that starting early next year there will be a registered CHOICE Germany and CHOICE Singapore working together with us.
We will now be able to bring initially 60 of the Village children to a Government school for education, this number will grow as we develop. CHOICE have purchased a transportation vehicle and rented a center near the Village and school. They will be given a meal each before school at the center. The center will be used for entertainment on Sundays and for children’s vocational training later in the year. A water filtration system will be installed at the center to allow us to take safe drinking water to the Villagers and school daily.
We will be taking volunteers next year for maintanence work on the center, plus work on the government schools in the vacinity.
Jayne purchased 20 chickens for the twins family and we had a chicken pen built, we also gave them a big bag of chicken pellets.
Ashok provided a new car battery and light so they can see at night.
We have taken many women for medical treatment this past month. Firstly, Jackie provided medical treatment for Mum and her newborn baby daughter they were both very sick, Jackie also gave baby clothes to the baby, they are both well now.
Another group of 3 very sick ladies from the Village. We took them to the clinic and some stayed overnight. Our lovely friends from Malaysia covered the costs for their treatment, again all well now.
We helped with the costs of replacing a hut in the first village due to flood damage,
and provided a village lady with crutches and treatment for a damaged leg.
As well we have purchased over 200 mosquito nets as it will be a bad year with mosquitos after the floods. So far we have delivered 140 nets.

Many of you will have followed the story about Sokha and her 16yo son Channy. For those who havn’t, Sokha 53, fell off a moving truck in January 2011 and broke her neck in two places. CHOICE arranged and paid for an operation for her then followed this up with physio treatment. She has been at the Physio center for for more than 6 months, CHOICE have been seeing her twice a week bringing essential items, as well as caring for her brother at the hut, he has severe Leprosy. Channy quit school to care for his mum. In order for Channy to begin a normal school life again next year, CHOICE have been preparing an area next to the hut where Sokha can continue with her daily physio exercise. Sokha has come a long way, from being paralized to now being able to walk with the aid of a hand rail. We intend to build an adjoining bedroom on the same level so there will be no obsticles in her way. Financial help from sponsors have enabled us to do the work, many thanks to Ad & Monique Schoonen and all the others. If you can help CHOICE do more work like this and help others please donate on our website. www.choice-cambodia.org
Ryta’s story: Ryta fell bottom first into a boiling pot of sugar and water. Her bottom and reproductive organs melted together. Her parents are very poor, they borrowed money from neighbours. An emergency operation was done and Ryta was fitted with a catheter and colostomy bag. They live 55k’s outside the city and cannot afford the costs of colostomy bags or the traveling costs to and from Phnom Penh. CHOICE are covering costs at the moment and have taken her to the C.S.C. Hospital where Dr. Jim may have to perform many more operations over time. Can you please help by donating on our “Donate” page of this website, tag your donations “For Ryta”
