In the last weeks, in Cambodia, there has been an increase in cases of Coronavirus and the Minister of Education has decided to close schools until the beginning of the new year.
The restrictions also affected the activities of the Damnok Toek association which, with the support of Mani Tese, welcomes Cambodian boys and girls who are victims of traffiking and abuse.
The association, which has been active for over 20 years, has had to suspend classes in Neak Loeung, a city in southern Cambodia, and in Poipet, a city on the border with Thailand.
Teachers and social workers then arranged to meet the students one by one in their homes to distribute and correct their homework and, at the same time, to assess whether the children are in safe conditions.
If necessary, all beneficiaries of Damnok Toek’s activities will still have access to the medical services offered by the association.
In addition, all Damnok Toek staff members have been trained and understand the importance of hygiene measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19: during the activities they will wear masks and gloves and use hand sanitizers, encouraging children and their families to do the same.
Here are some photos of Damnok Toek’s staff at work:
