Taste of Positivity – Chapter 2
On May 9, 2020, our team at PeopleStories was gearing up again for our 2nd Relief Package Program to those vulnerable students and their families in rural Cambodia.
So far, we have gifted 2 tonnes of rice and 170 storybooks to the families in need.
Equally important, we listened to the many who have lost their jobs, can’t repay their bank loans, have no land to grow anything, and some students even have to start working to helping the family.
Truly tough times and the already poor are being hit the hardest!
United by compassion and love, we hope the packages will give the students and their families not only some financial relief but also a sense of hope and a #TasteOfPositivity.
Give a Taste of Positivity!
COVID-19 has impacted many lives but the poor are hit the hardest and this includes many families in rural Cambodia.
Tourist arrivals dropped by 50-90% since February and many people in Siem Reap Cambodia have lost their jobs without the support of social benefits.
We think that #CabinFever is tough but let’s think for a moment about those families who struggle to put food on the table for their families.
On April 10, 2020, PeopleStories again geared up to spread some positivity!
Our relief packages of more than 1 tonne of rice for our scholarship students who all come from a poor background are ready! There are also 170 storybooks for them to stay interested in reading (online learning is non-existent).
United by compassion and love, we hope to give these families not only some financial relief but also hope and a #TasteOfPosivity.
Let them know that somewhere, someone in this world really cares about them!
