While Cambodia had few Covid cases in 2020, the nation has been on lockdown since January 2021 as the virus continues to infect hundreds of people a day. The lockdown has hurt Cambodia’s economy and resulted in widespread unemployment.
In Pursat Province, however, victory gardens continue to flourish. At present, nearly 800 families have gardens that are providing them with nutritious food and keeping them safe as the need to go to the market or look for work is minimized.
Even if families don’t sell surplus vegetables, their savings from not buying food is significant. Face-to-Face believes our Victory Garden Campaign in Cambodia can continue to grow so that it quickly reaches thousands of new families in need.
