The COVID pandemic as well as the organized effort of major programs, such as UNICEF, the US Embassy, and World Vision, to close and defund Cambodian orphanages, has had a big effect on funding sources. Fortunately for us, we were able to provide cremation services for nearly 200 COVID victims, which gave us a steady income during the COVID period. New funding sources, however, are now being sought as we are still in a position to keep our doors open and are being asked to accept new children from Social Services as well as to take in some of the children from programs that are closing because of a lack of funding.
It has become apparent that if we are to continue to be a community for Vulnerable children in Cambodia, we are going to have to become more self-sufficient. The following is the accounting of the funds for The Wat Opot Community and includes those funds we raised this month by working together, as well as the funds from other donations.

A donor once suggested that giving to HIV, AIDS, and other vulnerable children was a thing of the past and that there were now, other more important causes to give to. My response was “What is the point of saving a life if you are not going to provide an opportunity for that Life to be meaningful?” Wat Opot is a refuge for the Vulnerable children who now live here, but it is also a place to return to when the going gets tough and for that reason, we are very grateful for those who continue to support us.
