Kick Out Malaria Project
RSP intends to carry out this Awareness campaign between September and October each year.
The purpose is to educate the people within RSP's community on Malaria. The programme will include information on what malaria is, how to prevent and how to treat it.
Children will be taught about the risks through educational materials and games. Once the course has been completed, families will be given mosquito nets information on where to receive treatment if necessary.
Traditional Khmer Music Project
Raise and Support the Poor would like to provide students with the opportunity to discover and develop their musical talents.
This is also a part of vocational training, as students would like be able to lend their services to ceremonies, weddings and other occasions.
In addition, these students would play an important part in keeping Cambodian culture alive. It will teach them to take pride in their country's traditions and play a part in maintaining its rich history.
In the future, we would like to create several awareness courses aimed at raising the standards of living in the community. These courses will be about hygiene, nutrition and first aid.
A large part of creating a health care facility is preventive care. With these campaigns, and possibly others in the future, we hope to provide the community with essential information related to the maintenance of their good health. Awareness will be raised for hygiene, such as washing hands, brushing teeth and washing regularly; nutrition, so that people can maintain a healthy diet in order to prevent diseases, and first aid, such as the use of antiseptics, bandages and even CPR.
Additional Hospital projects
RSP would like to add three more projects to the hospital once it has been completed: a watertank, an ambulance and a long-term care facility.
This watertank is an essential part of the hospital project. It will be installed next to the Peace Pond and will purify the water and funnel it to the hospital.
This means that the water can be used for sanitation, cooking, and other medical needs. The watertank will have a capacity of 10 000 litres for daily clinic service.
The RSP community covers an area of approximately 20 km2. Once the hospital project has been completed, the people would hugely benefit from having an ambulance. Right now, an ambulance coming from Phnom Penh could take 1,5 hour, just one way. However, the question remains whether an ambulance would even be sent out, with families lacking the funds to pay for it. With RSP’s own ambulance, people who live far away and need emergency care can be transported to the hospital without concerns or delay.
The hospital’s design includes a back entrance to the building, suitable for ambulance personnel and an ambulance stretcher. This entrance has been strategically placed to protect any children from witnessing possibly disturbing scenes.
Once the hospital is fully equipped to maintain the use of an ambulance, RSP will being raising funds for its purchase and personnel.
Long-term care facility
This project would also be a valuable addition to the hospital.
RSP would eventually like to construct a neighbouring building for long-term patients. If a patient requires care for more than two weeks, he or she can be moved to the long-term care facility in order to receive proper treatment while making room for new patients.
