COVID-19 pandemic has hit Cambodia since the beginning of 2020. The Government of Cambodia had taken initial measures in March to prevent a spread of COVID-19 within the country. These measurements and restrictions have allowed maintaining the infection cases at low rates, but at the same time are having a devastating socio-economic impact at individual and country level. The Government, is now starting to ease the preventive measures to authorize the population to resume economic activities, opening of all schools in January 2021 and internal travels, but still controllingvery strictly the borders to avoid “importing”COVID-19 cases with travelers coming from affected countries
World Vision International (WVI) and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, SDC Representation Office Phnom Penh are proposing a support to a project on Re-building Resilience of COVID-19 Affected Communities (RCAC) in Kampong Thom and Preah Vihear provinces to fill the existing gaps of the government’s responses. The overall goal of the project is “the resilience of target communities affected by COVID-19 pandemic in Kampong Thom and Preah Vihear provinces are rebuilt and strengthened”.

The specific characteristics of household beneficiaries will include female-headed households, internally displaced or returnees, households with disabled members, laid off garment workers, parents of infants and young children, accounting for 7,175 people (60% Female, 40% Male and among those 40% are children under 18)
