Tackling hunger in Cambodia

Christian Aid and sister agency DanChurchAid work together in Cambodia to ensure poor rural communities can adapt to a changing climate and feed their families.

'Poverty means not having land to farm, cows to use, rice to eat and money to buy food in the lean times.'
Sou Et, 57, Farmer

Around three quarters of Cambodia's population live in the countryside, where they depend on agriculture for survival. However, each year the consequences of droughts, floods, pests, high levels of debt and poor health mean that millions cannot grow or afford enough food to feed their families.

Christian Aid is working in Cambodia with DanChurchAid to help thousands of poor rural families develop diversified and more sustainable ways of farming so that they can feed their families all year round and become more resilient to the changing climate and other difficulties.
