RW Supply + Design’s mission is that we exist UNTIL EVERY CHILD IS HOME. According to UNICEF, Cambodian malnutrition rates among children under five years old are some of the highest in the region, with 32 percent of the children being too short for their age. Poverty is one of the most common reasons children are abandoned in Southeast Asia; we believe that no child should become an orphan due to poverty.
Love Without Boundaries is able to provide critical nutrition twice daily to all of their students as well as supplemental rice and fresh food deliveries to their poorest students and their families who live and work in nearby landfills. Often these families have been forced to move to the landfills as a last resort.
Renee, who recently passed her exams at the LWB school and is promoting to 5th grade, is part of a large family who earn a very low income from collecting landfill trash. Like so many other landfill children, Renee used to suffer from lack of food and poor nutrition. “You saved me and my family!” she recently told the staff of LWB.
Providing food and education to children, like Renee, not only gives them hope for the future, but also allows them live with their biological families and avoid the trauma of child abandonment. Family preservation is one of the most effective ways to make sure that every child is home. The ability to support Love Without Boundaries and work until the day that every child is home is solely because of the work that you do each day.
