AKP Phnom Penh, November 2, 2011 –The United States Government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA), has provided additional flood relief aid of nearly US$1.5 million in response to the flooding in Cambodia.

The fund will urgently address critical needs in drinking water, sanitation, hygiene, agriculture, and livelihoods support in Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, and Kandal, three of the most-affected provinces, according to a press release from the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh.

This amount is in addition to the initial US$50,000 provided in October for distribution of emergency relief supplies, it said.

Save the Children will receive an additional grant for US$750,000, therefore 31,500 Cambodians will be the direct beneficiaries of this grant in Kampong Cham province. World Vision will receive a grant for US$721,807 and will reach 27,000 affected Cambodians in Kandal and Kampong Thom provinces.

Overall, these organizations will reach approximately 58,500 of the most vulnerable and flood-affected people over the next six months. Aid provided will support decontaminating affecteddrinking water sources, promoting good hygiene practices and rehabilitating latrines, and agricultural and livelihood needs.

Last month, the United States Government, through U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), awarded Save the Children a grant for US$50,000 to aid in flood relief efforts in the Kampong Cham area, the press release pointed out.
