Environmental disaster

The Kingdom of Cambodia is rich in natural resources such as forests, rivers and lakes that give the significant value to both animals and humans. If we can preserve our natural resources, our lives will be enriched.

The traditional cycle of seasons is changing as the climate changes.

Recently the Kingdom has been affected by floods that have destroyed property and infrastructure as well as causing many deaths.

Plastic bags are a big problem, especially in relation to flooding (3-4).

Related to this issue, some non-profit organisations have initiated projects to disseminate information on climate change and educate people in the countryside about it and how to protect themselves from its effects (6-7).

In society, there is not only involvement from government and non-government organisations. Young people can also play a big part in raising funds and finding supplies to donate to flood victims. We find a young woman that has a great deal of ability in this area (8).

We also found a group of students who got together to give their help to flood victims. (11).

There are many other articles to enjoy and inform in this issue of Lift, just as in  every issue. Lift appreciates your involvement, and we enjoy your entries in our weekly Lucky Draw.
