Caritas Cambodia Executive Director, Kim Rattana addressed his remark at the groundbreaking ceremony, presided over by H.E.Dr. Nhim Vanda, the First Vice President of National Committee for Disaster Management
 
Kampong Thom, 27th May, 2015: Senior Minister and the First Vice President of the National Committee for Disaster Management, H.E.Dr. Nhim Vanda and Caritas Cambodia Executive Director, Mr. Kim Rattana presided over the groundbreaking ceremony for two water gates construction project and road renovation of 2,950 meter in Kampong Kor commune, Kampong Svay district of Kampong Thom province.
The two projects are financially supported by Caritas Germany and Caritas Switzerland through Caritas Cambodia.
Kim Rattana, Caritas Cambodia Executive Director said both projects are part of Caritas Cambodia’s disaster management and rehabilitation program to improve the livelihood and sustainability for the disaster affected communities.
Kampong Kor commune is considered one of the most hit area by floods and thousand hectares of rice field and crops were severely affected and damaged when disasters strike.
“I believe that having both OLor and Taduch water gates will improve food security for the poor families. People can do farming in the dry and rainy seasons, therefore, their rice yield and crop production will be increased”, said Rattana adding that “ while a new road is key to facilitate people to easily access to market and public services such as health care, education and other needs”.
