Cambodia-Dutch is realizing a community center in rural Cambodia in collaboration with Wilde Ganzen. The community center is being built on the grounds of the commune, opposite our medical post in Khnar Po.
The community Center in Khnar Po
We chose this location because of its central location. This place is the heart of the commune and is known to all residents. The road to the location is less used by traffic and is therefore less dusty in the dry season. Moreover, this is one of the most beautiful places in the commune, with a beautiful view over the rice fields and the mountain Phnom Khoulen.
Temporary emergency shelter
The center is intended as temporary emergency shelter for children and single mothers with their children. In addition, it is an important place for the community to organize consultations and meetings. Permanent housing is not the aim of the center. We offer temporary shelter here, until a definitive solution is found. Local mothers temporarily run the community center.
The center will also become a shelter for families of sick children undergoing long-term treatment at the medical post. The community center also offers a solution for disabled children and the elderly who are accompanied by family. The community center will also become a meeting place for the locals. The building will have an open character. There will be a room with overnight accommodation for the staff, so that guidance can always be present. The building will also have a kitchen, a beautiful veranda and ample storage space. Solar panels provide the power.
