COVID-19 CRISIS
CLOSING OF THE IWA WORKSHOP

MARCH 2020

Dear Partners, Donors and Subscribers,
 
The Cambodian Ministry of Health has announced that from March 17th 2020, all schools and centers in Cambodia should close until further notice as a precaution against the COVID-19 virus.

We therefore informed our staff and volunteers of the association about the situation and the hygiene measures to be respected.

IWA KEP has closed the workshop in Kep until further notice.
 
Our team in Switzerland and in Cambodia will continue to work on communication, fundraising and management of the association in general to be able, after this period of crisis, to open its doors in the best possible way.

The shop and the workshop are also closed until further notice.


In order to secure and support our team on site in Kep, salaries will of course always be guaranteed even during this closed period, beyond our control.

As of today in Cambodia, a hundred people have been detected.  As hospitals are not efficient, it is important to show solidarity and act while being responsible, whether on a personal or collective level.

Thank you for continuing to support us during this difficult time.
We hope that the situation in your respective countries will improve.

Do not hesitate to contact us intlwomenassociation@gmail.com for any question or to join our President Melissa Matteucci in Switzerland: email: matteuccimel@gmail.com

THANK YOU AND STAY SAFE

Melissa MATTEUCCI
Founder and President of IWA Kep
