Cambodian Assistance and Cultural Preservation Project Inc.
WHAT WE DO
Our projects fall into three main areas.
1)Donations of rice, clothing and medicine (over the counter analgesics, cold and digestive ailment medications, as well as toothbrushes, mosquito nets and blankets). We have Buddhist monks from the local temple perform the appropriate rituals to accompany the distribution of these items to poor families in the village. In keeping with cultural traditions we feed the monks and make donations to the local temple.
2)Subsidizing educational and medical expenses for children from poor families. Through our own research and through village and religious leaders we learn of families who are in dire need of financial assistance in sending their children to school or providing medical care for them. Things as simple as providing funds for tuition, books, a uniform and a bicycle allow a child to attend school who would otherwise not be able to. Paying for clinic visits and antibiotics for children who have reoccurring infections or who need simple surgical procedures, can return them to a productive life.
3)We also document the traditional religious and cultural practices though video and slide presentations, and make these available to the public at large in the United States through free seminars and workshops.
