In November 2019, C4C commenced a project in the village of Prek Trob, Battabang Province, Cambodia. This area of Cambodia is considered one of the most disaster-prone – experiencing both floods and droughts. Around a quarter of the families here live below the poverty line, earning less than $1.25 a day. Structurally safe and secure housing for families is desperately needed to withstand natural disasters.
Through our partnership, Communities for Communities will support the construction of permanent, basic housing and the development of a supportive infrastructure which will feature improved hygiene, sanitation, and educational opportunities.
On our first immersion trip in November 2019, our volunteers began building the first few homes for the community. This is an ongoing partnership with Habitat for Humanity, and we are beyond excited to continue this exciting and challenging project.
During 2021, Communities for Communities volunteers will take part in additional immersion trips to Cambodia to build homes and support the community. If you’d like to join us, or find out more information, please get in touch.
