World Vision Hong Kong in Cambodia (2016)Tags：
After many years of war and internal conflict, Cambodia is gradually emerging from its turbulent past. The country achieved the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of halving its poverty rate, and with economic improvement, poverty is expected to continue to decline over the next few years. Health and education are two development priorities for the country such as ensuring children under five are nourished, children complete secondary education, and communities have access to water supply and improved sanitation.
World Vision first entered Cambodia in 1970, in response to the Cambodian government’s international appeals for assistance, but was forced to leave later during the Khmer Rouge period. Access was regained in 1979 and our presence has continued since. Today, World Vision is operating 47 Area Development Programmes (ADPs) in Cambodia.
In 2016, World Vision Hong Kong contributed approximately HK$34.27 million to support 7 ADPs and 3 other projects in Cambodia, benefiting over 188,340 people.
