Every little bit helps in Phum Bavel

A young mother and her infant child receive multi-vitamins and a dietary supplement

distributed at Phum Bavel District Hospital by volunteers from the Indochina American

Volunteer Organization (IAVO) on 12 Nov.

Chief medical officer at the 30-bed hospital southwest of Battambang city, Martin

R. Keffing of the U.N.'s Netherlands unit, said before the rainy season the hospital

saw many patients with dengue fever, but more recently he has been treating scores

of children for pneumonia and bronchitis.

IAVO has brought about 4 tons of food and medical supplies into Cambodia since January.

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, IAVO was formed four years ago to assist

impoverished and disabled children in Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.
