A word from a World Hope Volunteer
Over 850 patients treated in Cambodia in 4 days
World Hope's medical team and volunteers, have treated 853 patients over 4 days in rural Cambodia. The minister for culture and religion in one of the regions said they "welcome Christian people like World Hope into their communities," and expressed appreciation that Christians (both locally and from abroad) are helping people. Have a look at the below video that highlights our partnership with local workers and the people of Cambodia.
World Hope Network gets involved with the locals on a personal, one-to-one basis. Visitations, community projects, building renovations, youth and children, community sport initiatives and remote station visitations are a part of recognizing the misunderstood culture of Australia’s beautiful outback. The beauty and mystical musical culture of Thursday Island is something not to be missed. Get involved and discover and experience stories of the young and old.

Cambodian officials say the floods have decimated crops, with the loss of over 100,000 hectares of rice paddy fields and other crops. Damage was also reported to hundreds of schools, temples and dozens of regional health centers. More than 130,000 families are feeling the impact of the floods nationwide.
Fortunately, World Hope’s CEO and Vice CEO were travelling from Vietnam to Cambodia during October, following welfare projects in Vietnam. They were able to personally assist in flood relief efforts with our In-country Cambodian partners, Campus Crusade for Christ.
258 families were identified in the Battambang region, in which immediate assistance was provided. Each family received a 20kg bag of rice, one box of instant noodles, and a box of clean water. World Hope has made a donation to our partnering team, with further donations being gladly received.
As always, thoughts and prayers are needed, and if you are able to assist in World Hope’s contribution to the Cambodian relief effort, please donate via the donate button/page. (reference- Cam relief)
