The people of Koh Andaet created this special video to thank you for the amazing change you’ve made possible in their community.
Thanks to you, children and families are eating well and staying healthy.
You've helped increase the number of children that eat three balanced meals a day from just 35% of children in 2010 to an incredible 89% at the time of most recent reporting. What an amazing change!
You've trained parents and caregivers to cook nutritious meals with local foods to improve nutrition and dietary diversity, ensuring children grow up healthy and nourished. Thanks to you, now fewer young children are underweight, and many malnourished children have recovered their health.
Because of you, new mums now know they must eat well to give their babies a good start in life, and most are breastfeeding.
Thanks to your support, families in Koh Andaet now have more sources of clean water, and they're equipped with the skills to maintain them.
Now, more than ever, good hand-washing behaviours are vital for families to stay healthy and safe. Your support has helped increase the number of families with good hand-washing behaviours from just 28% in 2010 to 75% at the time of the most recent reporting.
Clean water means life. Thanks to you, it now also means freedom for the children of Koh Andaet – freedom from waterborne illnesses. You've helped the children and families in Koh Andaet have more sources of clean water close to home, and they know how to treat water so it's safe to drink.
Thanks to your support, a skilled birth attendant at every birth in Koh Andaet community has significantly reduced the risk of death for babies and mothers.
For women and children in Asia, surviving childbirth and the first five years of life is challenging. The maternal death rate in Cambodia is significantly higher than other developing countries. Thanks to you, the Koh Andaet community is turning this reality around, by getting essential medicines, nutritional support and education to mums and their communities.
Because of you, now pregnant women and new mothers have better local health support and access to prenatal and postnatal healthcare. They receive vaccinations and supplements like iron and folic acid, helping them and their babies to grow healthy and strong.
You can help another child break free from poverty, for good. Your sponsorship will help bring essentials like clean water, education and healthcare to a child and their community.
Children in the world’s most dangerous places need you now. Help them survive, recover and build a future. You can provide life-saving food, water and protection to kids whose lives are on the line.
Including a gift in your Will to World Vision is a wonderfully generous way to ensure the values that are important to you live on, as you continue impacting communities around the world.
