UN agency provides 1,670 dignity kits for Cambodia’s response to COVID-19 pandemic

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Cambodia provided 1,670 dignity kits along with communication materials to assist the Interior Ministry’s National Committee for Counter Tracking in fighting against COVID-19 pandemic, said its news statement released late on Monday.

The dignity kits will be distributed to vulnerable migrant returnees, particularly pregnant women and women at high risk of gender-based violence and violence against women through the national and sub-national levels, the statement said.

Approximately 100,000 migrant workers have returned to Cambodia from Thailand since March and those returnees, especially pregnant women require continued access to sexual and reproductive health services and information, it said.
