The FFM started to look into sponsoring projects in Cambodia in 2008. A group of our volunteers went to meet several local NGOs and identified the Salvation Centre Cambodia (SCC) as a possible local partner to work with.
We now provide financial support to the SCC in two of its activities:
- Funeral Support to poor families and especially those affected by HIV/AIDS. (Hyperlink)
- Children Basic Education (CBE) programme. (Hyperlink)
The SCC is a faith‐based organisation set up in 1994 with the objectives of reducing the stigma associated with HIV and educating the communities on preventive measures against the spread of HIV/AIDS. Through the compassion and dedication of the Buddhist monks and nuns involved, together with its staff members, volunteers and generous supporters, the SCC has been able to improve the lives of many people suffering from HIV/AIDS. Its work includes providing support to the families of the patients and the children orphaned by HIV/AIDS.
It has since moved into providing basic education for children. It targets children excluded from the public education system because of economic and social reasons.
Initially confined to Phnom Penh, the SCC has now extended its coverage to other areas like Battambang and Siem Reap. In 2011, the SCC was awarded the GPP in recognition of its good governance and professional practice.
