(Cambodia) Seedling of Hope – Adult Project
Seedling of Hope for Adults improves the quality of life of destitute people living with HIV/AIDS. We provide services and access to services that promote a healthier and viable life that keep families together. This enables parents to care for their own, preventing the incidence of orphaned and vulnerable children.
The services provided include home-based care, access to necessary medicine and medical services, psycho-social support, livelihood and shelter if needed. Building houses and house repairs are done in partnership with Habitat for Humanity.
