The populations of Cambodia and of the popular democratic Republic of Laos are mainly rural. These populations are, even today, in the biggest need, more exactly in the field of the health, of the education, of drinkable water and food.
Certain provinces of Cambodia and of Laos facilitated the construction of schools in the bordering regions of the big centres. At present, it is important and urgent to concentrate efforts in the construction of infrastructures and in the hiring of the human resources in regions very remote from big centres, to reduce the social disparities between regions. One should note that Cambodia has a current need for 500 additional schools. Actually, you should not forget as well that a very large number of children have no access to school.
Small school of fortune in board and bamboo welcoming 386 pupils, while the maximal capacity is 150 places. Villages of Bane That and Dan Maï, situated in region taken away in the district of Xienghone, in 200 km in the northeast of the city of Sayaboury.
The conditions of health of these countries improved much more in the big towns than in the rural regions where whole territories are not served and are without resources for health care. The main obstacle, particularly in Cambodia, results from the absence of means of traffic and from the lack of infrastructures being connected with it (roads to roads). This results in difficult road conditions that prevent the Red Cross from reaching these very remote regions, and emphasizing the importance for the availability of local private hospitals.
The villages of regions discriminated of Cambodia and Laos rarely have access to some drinkable water. So, the populations of these villages have to use wells of surface of polluted water. Every day, the children are going to get fresh supplies and drink the stagnant water of the puddles in which animals drink and bathe there. The absence of drinkable water results in the propagation of infectious infant diseases and diseases such as cholera, dengue fever, etc. During the dry season, given the lack of water, it is impossible to make vegetables farming, therefore the urgency to build water tanks to receive and preserve the water during monsoons..
