Project #64 | Maternal Care Access in Cambodia
Our partnership with Resource Development International (RDI)
Resource Development International is an organization that has been actively working on water, sanitation, education, and community development projects since 2000 in Cambodia. Their programs and projects are helping reduce poverty and improve the livelihoods in rural Cambodia.
Through this partnership with RDI, we came alongside the families in the Kandal Province to support and strengthen their maternal health programs. The project’s three main goals were to: increase the knowledge of rural health center staff in best practices to prevent maternal and newborn mortality, train more community health teachers to teach and assist pregnant women in their villages for years to come, and increase the use of the local health center for delivery of baby and immunizations. The 250 women who will receive prenatal care and classes will also have their delivery and postnatal cost covered. This will allow the women to go in for check ups before delivery, deliver their baby in a safe place, and receive immunizations for their baby’s first year. We believe that access to quality maternal care is a crucial part of the empowerment of women and their families.
Our collective impact
Thank you for making this possible!
Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
If you want to support future projects like this you can make a donation to our maternal health fund.
