In Cambodia, most families are living in poverty and illiterate, thus they are liable to be suffered many problems that they are encountering and moreover, some parents don’t pay enough attention about healthcare and various prevention to their families, significantly their children. Additionally, Healthcare is a fundamental building block in the fight against world poverty. Likewise in Cambodia, the lack of healthcare prevention is one the main factors contributing poverty and blocking the efforts of the Cambodia Royal Government in developing and fostering its national economy. The cost of treating diseases is huge and it also takes adults away from their daily work and give children to miss their classes.

Serve Cambodia has been involving with helping Cambodian people to achieve their prospective goals through providing the education system which includes educational classes, nutrient food and healthcare provision. So far, one of our newly commenced projects called Medical Outreach Project has assisted as a health coordinator in our communities ( Happy Village 1 and 2) and education centres by providing healthcare training to help them to be aware of prevention and avoidance from sickness and disease, and giving some basic medication.


Due to lack of healthcare education, most parents do not care enough about of their children’s eating, thus most children’s teeth are severely damaged and decayed. Through the medical outreach project, we care about them and we had looked for outer connection with other NGOs which provides free dental care for children. 37 children who had severely damaged teeth were recently brought for Dental Care NGO to checkup.
Recently, we also provided further training through our education centres with the topic “How to brush your teeth properly”. There were 139 students participating. We choose this topic because we want to let children know that teeth are very important to mechanically break down items of food by cutting and chewing them in preparation for swallowing and digesting. In addition, we also advise them to eat healthy food and avoid eating too much sugary food because all these food can impair their teeth quickly. And we guide them to choose good quality item to brush their teeth as well. If they had unhealthy teeth, they may become sick and miss their classes.




Through this we discover that most children can know exactly how to practice regularly to build this good habit and make sure that their teeth are maintain properly. However we still continue dental check ups for other children in the next trimester to ensure that all students are paid attention. And we try our best to continue the healthcare education for them as often as possible, on this topic and many more.

People who live in Happy Village Community Nº 1 (Koh Krobey village) are receiving more blessings from God this year, after they just had the new concrete road in front of their houses which donated by Rick Team in January. Now some of them also have the new houses for their better accommodation while they wish to make it happen in their community.

Because of Serve Cambodia see their difficulties like their children are growing very fast as they need to have a private room (girl room), sometimes the house get flooded when the rain falls down and some of the last more basic houses are getting old and deteriorating.


These new house have a size of 7 meters length and 4 meters width and it has bathroom, kitchen, mezzanine and  utility system and it is the strong building.

Now we have built two houses already and we will keep going to build more for our people in this community. As Serve Cambodia has strong commitment and leadership to serve these people, so we will try to find the generous donation and sponsorship.


We would like to say Thank You God for everything He blessed, and also our friend, partner and supporter especially the Mission Direct Teams who join to make these things happened in this community. Mission Direct have supported our community and projects for many years and have continued to be faithful in helping the poor, so we are very grateful.

God bless you all and Love you.

Through the very helpful training that we have had with ACCIR staff that come to help Serve Cambodia again over the last few month, we have recognize a lot of things for improving the way the community working together. To start in action we have done some work with the people in community that live in Happy Village I and II to find out their vision and what they want to learn or doing in the next 3 year.


In the last 3 month till now we have done more than 9 family interview form so far. It’s such a privilege to hear about their life getting difference from before. We are so proud of them to see they are growing in the better way. Through the talking we have some fun time and also we have some time to play game together to make it joyful and easy for them.


Anyway, we find out one thing that they are wish to have in the future is the land and house ownership that belong to themselves. We have encourage them to set up a good plan to achieve their goal if they are really keen to see that in the futures. So we have encourage to them work harder and try to save up the money that they earn today to have a good family budget plan so they able to get the loaning from other Micro finance organisations to achieve their plan in the future. Some of the families have been saving really well for the past few months now according to their budgets and are very encouraged about this.


Everybody in the world wish to have better place to stay and live in the good condition, so do the people in our community as well, they want something that they can achieve for themselves, and see the results of their own hard work and commitment. Finally, please pray for them to achieve their goal of what they wish to do in the futures.

The Road for Glory

Early in 2015 peoples who living in Happy Village #1 are have been blessing by get new road and people are very happy to see new road that happens in their village, and because it very hard in raining season with muddy and small road. This was so hard for them because they travel by walking, bicycle or some of them have 1 motorbike for their whole family to ride together. It was easy to get stuck or fall over in the mud.



It also was a great opportunity that we have the chief commune officer joins with us on the opening day of New Road construction at Happy Village (Koh Krabey village). In the speech the government chief officer said:

“Serve Cambodia has been a part of developing to our community, not just through the education but also through the transportation (Road) too. Just like today that we will do the new road construction by cement with 4m widths and 200m length. So these are happened because of Serve Cambodia see the needed and want our community developing like our neighbour community. I hope that all of us in this village will cooperative take care this new road when it is done as it is belong to everyone in community.”

The road was finished about one week, everyone in the village are very happy to see new road because they easy and smooth for them to travel. So many people in the area were excited when the road was complete, so they sat out on the road for a long time that day and celebrate with eachother.



Finally we would love say give thanks to God that he blessed to our community and our peoples, and we also give thanks you to our partnership from overseas friends that they come to helping and see what we needs, and committing to raise the money needed for this project. Thank you all so much!
