House of Family
HOUSE OF FAMILY, Cambodia
Over the last five years, many organizations came to the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, with the goal to stop the spreading of HIV and to address the consequences, which mostly affect lives of children. One of these organizations was the St Elizabeth University of Health and Social Sciences. It established an orphanage that would provide treatment for children with HIV. Because of the constantly increasing number of orphans who needed this kind of help, the school eventually opened four additional treatment homes and the school currently fosters more than 150 Cambodian children. The Two-Colour World civic association is the main sponsor of House of Family, but it could not be so without the support of the St. Elizabeth University of Health and Social Sciences and Professor Krčméry. We also cooperate with other organizations such as the J&T Foundation, Daniela Hantuchova Charity, JAVYS inc., Július Horváth and Jutex Foundation and more.
The project provides children with:
-school and pre-school activities
-tutoring / individual lecturing
-24 -hour medical care
-HAART - antiretroviral medication to stop the replication of the virus
-laboratory testing and health monitoring
-prophylaxis and treatment of opportunistic infections
-collaboration with other health centers
-specific examinations (dental, ear and eye care, immunizations)
-professional care provided by doctors and social workers from Slovakia and Cambodia
You can help the children from House of Family in different ways. To find out more visit the section LET’S HELP.
