World Assistance for Cambodia/Japan Relief for Cambodia

 

Thousands of the rural poor in Cambodia, struggle to meet their basic needs due to poverty. Many have no access to health care and a large number of rural children are unable to receive an education because there is no school. Sometimes even when there is a school some children, often girls, can’t go to school because their families are so poor that they are forced to work instead. There are also orphans who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS and no one is there to take care of them.   WAfC and JRfC are independent nonprofit organizations dedicated to providing opportunities for the youth and rural poor in Cambodia. World Assistance for Cambodia is registered in the United States as a 501(c) (3) tax-deductible nonprofit organization.  Within Cambodia, WAfC/JRfC is recognized by the Cambodian government as one nonprofit organization.
