Because of a long past of war and genocide, Cambodia has a lack of community organization, the social structures and social links having been destroyed, For this reason, the social control on the foster families and the moral climate in the foster families are very weak.
On the other hand, the last 30 years have generated bad governance and a poor economy.
The Ministry line for orphans (the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation) has thus a very small budget: It can't maintain public orphans and control on private orphanages.
The foster families have a low income and a poor education, and provide malnutrition, and poor health care to the orphans.
CGA is developing a “Caring for Orphans” program in response to the increasing number of orphans in Phnom Penh and other provinces due to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and to different poverty-related diseases such as Tuberculosis and Hepatitis.
This program aims to get orphans from disadvantaged families of Phnom Penh and other provinces, educated and raised by Foster families in a Cambodian and holistic way, with a standard of excellence (objective: 200 orphans supported during this first 5 years phase of the program).
We develop a network of foster families, providing dozens of orphans with an holistic support including shelter, food, clothing, medical care, school fees and counselling.
In agreement with the local authorities and the local organizations, CGA carries out relief actions, to be followed by holistic development programs in order to prevent the impact of any other future dramatic event.
