How much does it cost?
$70/£55/€60 per week including the salary of 2 ladies to prepare the nutritious 'bobo' (rice porridge) mixed with eggs, chicken meat and vegetables.
This wonderful program started in 2008 in Chumkiri, Kampot Province (one of the poorest in Cambodia). It currently serves an average of 180 children coming from very poor families in the villages of Chumkiri and Or. Every Sunday, these kids are served one very nutritious meal of 'bobo' (a rice porridge packed with eggs, chicken meat and veggies). It might not seem much but that one meal a week has proved to improve the health of these children. It is also a nice way to gather them together and check on their health and family issues. It is also an opportunity for the youth to serve their community.
What are the benefits of this program?
- to improve the health of the children;
- to build community life;
- to employ 2 local ladies;
- to involve the youth group;
- to give basic moral and hygiene principles
