TPO received a new award from USAID

TPO received a new award from the U.S. government, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), to provide innovative mental health therapies and healing methods for individuals and communities in 15 provinces who continue to face trauma from their experiences during the Khmer Rouge regime. The work will be carried out in collaboration with the Kdei Karuna Organization. This new project underscores the U.S. Government’s ongoing commitment to support transitional justice and peace and reconciliation in Cambodia. “The effects of the Khmer Rouge regime still linger for many Cambodians who lived through that terrible period,” said U.S. Ambassador William Heidt. “This project will help thousands of Cambodians who continue to suffer from the memory of that era to have access to essential mental health services that will help them to live happier and more productive lives.” attached press release from US embassy below: 025 – TPO New Award 8-15-2016.AID.PAS(Release-Eng) 025 – TPO New Award 8-15-2016.AID.PAS(Release-Khm)[3]...
