After ending a successful PrEP campaign in Cambodia last month by our partner organization, a new wave of Emergency aid requests arrived. Below an overview of the requests.
While Cambodia is reopening its border to tourists, the Untenu Foundation received a donation that allowed us to immediately provide emergency aid 3 times.
Buy one of our hand-woven Cambodian rainbow scarves and give an even greater gift: help, education and work experience for LGBTI people living with HIV in Cambodia. The scarves are traditionally woven by a transgender man and thus provide him with an income.
Last week, we provided emergency assistance to a trans woman in Phnom Penh. We have arranged food aid for 44 people for this purpose due to the strict lockdown in Cambodia.
A severe lockdown has been announced in Cambodia due to a second corona wave. Poor people and those who are losing their jobs as a result are now faced with food shortages. Untenu collects money for food parcels.
O. – a trans woman living with HIV – went to Sihanoukville for her relationship and to find work. Because of this she wanted to hide her HIV status and stopped taking HIV inhibitors.
Rosa was very ill. The application for emergency aid by Untenu stated: she hid her HIV status and therefore did not take HIV medication. Two weeks later She passed away.
After a break – due to lack of money – Untenu has resumed emergency aid to HIV-positive LGBTI people living in poverty in Cambodia.
Thanks to recent fundraising campaigns, the Untenu Foundation has managed to raise enough money to start a make-up training course for underprivileged LGBTI people with HIV in Battambang, Cambodia. The course will start during the Cambodian rainy season.
