Informations regarding Le Refuge Kol
Le Refuge Kol is based in Cambodia at some 60 km from the capital of the country, Phnom-Penh. It is a social and educational centre which sits in a poor village that has an economic system grounded on rice culture and unstable jobs. The dispensary has a regular staff of 9 people, which also helps in providing some families of the region with a way of living.
Le Refuge Kol, with a little structure in itself, is managed in the most scrupulous way and through the personal implication in the project by its founders (specially that of mezzo-soprano Sophie Koch). Thus allowing to allocate the 100% of the donations to the exclusive benefit of the “Refuge”.
The humanitarian mission of the Refuge is divided into different and many objectives, its action articulated in the following branches:
First of all it is a school that offers education to some 150 pupils, whose ages range from 6 to 18 year-old boys and girls. Its first objective being the fight against lack of schooling and illiteracy. The courses therefore focus on Khmer (the official language of the country) as well as English for all the students. Also courses in Maths are being imparted to the youngest amongst them. As a result of this the institution has 3 teachers on its payroll.
The Refuge also takes in some 30 children who were abandoned, the institution thus being entrusted with their care by their own families.
Le Refuge Kol also set up a couple of years ago a dentist consulting room, which is at the whole village disposal (and also to the whole province's), children though taking priority. The Refuge therefore has a couple of Cambodian dentists on its payroll, but also unselfish missionaries collaborate on a regular base with the institution.
38 out of all the children (whose families are in a most dramatic economical situation) also receive a sponsorship. They are therefore provided with rice and nourishment for themselves and their families.
Medical consultations are being organised twice a month.
A nurse provided with basic medical essentials is at disposal on a 24/7 base in case of emergencies.
Le Refuge is also a place for convalescence. An associated partner that offers heart-related chirurgy to indigent persons sends their patients for a post-operative recovery period to our institution. The number of people benefitting from this service is of 2 persons a month. They are also allowed to bring a person accompanying with them. The patients and the persons accompanying them receive lodging, nourishment and medical curative treatment.
Le Refuge Kol finally offers 3 times a week (in the mornings) an extra meal to 80 children, whose families can only offer them a meal a day and just a rice soup as a breakfast.
Many thanks to all of you for your collaboration in this project!
President of “Le Refuge Kol”
