KEFO’s Goal is everyone living in Cambodia can access for treatment when they got sick and the vulnerable people

In order to achieve this Goal, KEFO sets the Objectives as following:
a. To share difficulties of the poor and vulnerable families through assisting them finding the income generation.
b. To provide primary health care and to assist the vulnerable family members, who can not afford medical
services fees, to referral hospital and local clinic for treatment,
c. To provide assistance to victims of natural disaster and order extraordinary circumstance.
d. To improve women and children’s health in order to reduce child mortality rate and improve pre and post natal
In the last few years, KEFO had done little assistance to the community due to lacking of supports from the charity,
even though KEFO had staff who voluntarily worked without getting payment. In contrast, KEFO still got some
achievements with this little support.

KEFO is recently restructured and changing the leading; and some volunteer had also resigned from their works
because of their living condition. However, the new leadership was formed in October 2009 to continue carrying out
the relief works and at the meantime KEFO has received some new volunteers.
In order to accomplish the future relief works and through the experiences of these few years of
hard work, KEFO has revised its objectives from collecting the charitable fund from the Locals
and Expatriates who work in Cambodia by focusing on another sources of fund through the
outsider’s charity and contribution.
