AKRON, Pa. -- As the worst flooding in a decade begins to recede in Cambodia, the work of obtaining food and clean water and the long-term rebuilding of livelihoods is underway with assistance from Mennonite Central Committee (MCC).
During September and October, heavy monsoon rains in Cambodia caused the deaths of more than 240 people and displaced as many as 32,000. Flooding also caused extensive damage in the neighboring countries of Thailand and Vietnam.
