OIC The Cambodia Project Fundraising Dinner
Tue. 16 February 2016, 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm AEDT
Communicating with others is at the heart of being human.
Helping people communicate is at the heart of what we do.
In Cambodia, more than 600,000 people have a communication or swallowing disorder, yet health services for them are nearly nonexistent.
We're going to change that.
We’re working towards a Cambodia where each of these people receives the help they need to communicate with those around them, and lead full and happy lives.
For Cambodians with a communication or swallowing disorder, it is difficult to speak to loved ones or eat a meal, much less attend school or find a job. Speech therapists help children like Ling and Mai strengthen the muscles responsible for making sounds and swallowing. They also help with strategies to improve communication and make eating and drinking safer.
With the benefit of speech therapy, people with communication and swallowing disorders can connect with others, attend school, find jobs, and lead fuller, happier lives.
We have already begun to train Cambodian disability workers on speech therapy.
Join us for dinner with Weh Yeoh - OIC Founder - take action to support speech therapy in Cambodia and bring therapy to children in need & their families.
