The Bethezer Dorms in Phnom Penh provide a safe living environment for students pursuing postsecondary education in the Cambodian capital. An emergency fund to provide food for the poorest students had become depleted resulting in poor health and malnutrition amongst the most economically vulnerable. Two students had withdrawn from the university and returned to their homes in the provinces for lack of food.
When WCF became aware of the crisis, emergency funding of $2,000 was quickly provided to alleviate the situation. Of the 40 students in the dorms usually less than 10 require the emergency meal stipend.
