Tboung Khmum Province, Cambodia, 30 May 2020 – Over 200 new and rehabilitated houses for families whose homes were damaged or destroyed two years ago by flooding were handed over to their owners in an official ceremony.
The project was funded by the Government of Japan and implemented by Cambodia’s General Department of Housing, Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction and UN-Habitat in Cambodia. It involved community members’ active participation in the rehabilitation process, used their traditional knowledge and skills and promoted community ownership.
One beneficiary, Duth Chhundy said: “When we are in solidarity with others in the community, we can gain a lot of benefits. Together, we’ll try to be well prepared for future disasters.”
