Welcome to Cambodia
(and Lom Orng)
Lom Orng is one of Cambodia's leading native NGOs, in late 2011 undergoing a name-change from the Cambodian War Amputees Rehabilitation Society (CWARS). We specialise in vocational training (15,000+ graduates), cassava (15,000 farmers now out of poverty), livelihood (our After the Flood co-project now has 60,000 beneficiaries).
LO is operated by Cambodians, some of whom joined the NGO in 1995; most others have worked for the NGO for more than ten years. These staffers are a great human resource of the NGO.
Due to limited of funding as donor has no longer interest in Cambodia, Lom Orng is under shortage of fund to run its project, we have closed down most of the project and only maintain a few staff to conduct field follow up. Our office in Phnom Penh has been shut down and moved its management to Pursat, closer to the site of the last-mentioned project.
