Healthcare Training for the Needy

In Serve Cambodia’s Medical Outreach project, we pay close attention to all children in our centers and our communities as well. We have a number of strategies for providing support.

Most Cambodians in remote villages in the province or on the outskirts of the city have difficulty obtaining or getting healthcare education. Their financial circumstance compel them to focus on earning an income rather than taking time to absorb healthcare education. However hard people work, when someone in their family gets sick their money quickly disappears because of the cost of medical care. We are trying to educate people to realize that prevention is better than treatment.

We provide all the children and community with basic healthcare training, a dental care checkup twice a year, and BMI screening for the children every trimester. (BMI is a ratio of a person’s height and weight and while it does not specifically measure body fat but can be an indicator of body fatness). Every student needs some body fat but having too much body fat can put them at risk of health problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Having too little body fat is also unhealthy. Thus, every trimester all students have their BMI measured to ensure that their health is cared for and those with diet issues are given support and advice.

Thus we are working on how we can fix this problem by providing basic healthcare training for both children and community.

Another important strand of our work is to work on basic hygiene. Hygiene is a term for various practices that help preserve a person’s well-being and health through acts of cleanliness. In short, proper hygiene is important for children in order to keep them healthy. To practice preserving one’s health through acts of cleanliness is very important for children. By brushing their teeth, washing their hands, and cutting their fingernails, children help preserve their health and that of others around them. All the children in Serve Cambodia’s three centers are taught how to brush their teeth properly, to eat a balanced diet and how to recover from the flu or common cold. This also lets them know the consequences of poor hygiene and what constitutes good personal hygiene.

Additionally the community are invited to join training on healthcare knowledge every trimester in order for them to know how to protect themselves and their families. We have provided them some training in; first aid, hypertension, diabetes, dehydration and updated them on any current health issues. The community are also made aware that drinking plenty of water can treat some sickness without the use of medicine and they are also shown how to help people in an emergency. Feedback from the community is very positive and we found it encouraging to see how the community is sharing their knowledge with their family and community.

We see it as important that the community not only obtain medical care but also get education at the same time.

However, we are constantly looking for the next opportunity to help our community to improve its health care and for us to show Jesus’ love through our work.

About Seyha’s family, they had originally moved from the slum and came to live near the Serve Cambodia centre. Even though he has moved out of the slum, his family doesn’t have much money. It is still in a poor area - everyone needs a lot of support to make a bright and new future where they can earn enough income for themselves and improve their lives.

Fellowship of Hope Church (FHC) is continually committed to conduct our annual Pastors and Leaders conference in this year with our fabulous partner from Perth Bible College (PBC). The conference was held from 10th till 15th July 2017, which located in Siem Reap at the Dara Reang Sey Hotel. The first day had arrived, all pastors and church leaders were enthusiastic and gathered together by catching the 2 buses ahead to Siem Reap which has a breathtaking world heritage site known as AngKor Wat Temple, as they spent approximately 6 hours on the jounery. Significantly, there were 110 pastors and leaders who took place the conference for this year.

The theme of the conference was ‘‘Serving with Integrity’’, likewise the Godly servants have to loyally serve and illustrate God’s willing with love and honor to others, by not determining about race, color, religion, sexism and nationality…etc. Moreover, the young leaders are motivated to involve more by the following tracks which paved the way by elder pastors. Particularly, there were 2 sessions in a day at the morning and the evening, the first session at the morning was divided by 2 phases, there was a teaching session which followed by groups’ discussion, and then four different workshops after the break-time. And in the evening, there also was other teaching session. Interestingly, there were a great spirit of worship and unity in the place and everyone was challenged to draw closer in order to work much more effectively for the kingdom of God before each session was begun.

During the conference, the three senior pastors from FHC’s “mother church” conducted a 2km marathon along with 35 participants from the conference joined, as they want to raise money for building the mother church building in Phnom Penh which locate in Takmao. As all participants had to pay $2.50 each for church building fund. When this building is completed, FHC would not need to rent the existing church facility.

Our Kindergarten Class

Serve Cambodia’s new kindergarten class has done a great job, each student is happy and enjoys of their study every day. Daily, we saw them coming with their friend by walking together to school with a happy face and looking forward to get in their class. They have lots of fun and learn many new things from their teacher.

They can hang up their crafts, photos, pictures that were made by them self so they can see their work and also can remind them about the lessons that they had learned. Week by week, the class always changes activities, craft pictures so all student feel new for every week which not made them bored of their class.

Recently we had passed the Appreciation letter for the best student that they had done a great job in the past 3 months, while their mums had visited with them. As the parents they are really happy and excited about the achievement their child had accomplished.

We also gave advice and suggestion to the parent to be a part of our centre by encourage their child to come to class and follow up with them while they are at home and be a good example for them. Also to praised them when they had done something great or well, monitor them or showed them direction to go.

Moreover, our nurse had shared about the body hygiene to the parents to taking care of their young children when they are at home and make sure that their child had good hygiene when they are at school. As the result, every student appreciated what they had done.

Thank you so much to all of our sponsors for the students at each of Serve Cambodia’s centres (TLC, HOH and LOH). Your support is what makes this education and opportunity possible for the poor families to receive, and training them to have more responsibility and control for their own lives and families.
