K.I.D.S. Update - The Work at the Lake Clinic

Dec 18, 2015

Dear Friends,

We hope all is well with you and yours. This past week we spent a couple of days with The Lake Clinic team down on the Stung Sen River. K.I.D.S is pleased to be able to support this life-changing program on an ongoing basis. This year, due to the additional fundraising efforts of Doctor Suzanne Montemuro and the Scotia McLeod team in Victoria we are also able to support the salary for one of their incredible doctors for a year.

Visiting these more isolated areas always holds a mixture of sights and feelings. The beauty of the rice fields, lotus flowers and temples is juxtaposed with the undernourished children, lack of electricity, sanitation and poor living conditions. The Lake Clinic team travel long distances every week to stay on the clinic that K.I.D.S and the Compassionate Eye Foundation built, to provide healthcare, education and free medication.

Villagers travel to the floating clinic weekly with a variety of problems. It is remarkable to watch the team in action as they document each patient, provide examinations, dental care, pre and post natal care and visit local schools to track the children's health. They also do home visits for the more critical cases.

Through the challenging conditions of heat, rain and dealing with hoards of insects these dedicated people alleviate suffering and improve lives. Thanks for supporting us in supporting them.


So long for now we will be in touch again soon.

The best,
Adrianne and Rick
