Due to heavy monsoon rains in the countryside, most ricefields have already been flooded and damaged, like the one below. Dotting the flooded area are sugar palm trees.
The ricefield looks beautiful, isn’t it?
To many unknowing foreigners, this is a very exotic, postcard-pretty sight.
But – and a big BUT – rice plants that are submerged in water for more than two days will die. And if this happens to the rice crop of the many affected farmers around the country it is going to be a huge disaster! I couldn’t help but imagine how many families will experience food shortage and, possibly, starvation.
Please do give something. Contact the Cambodian Red Cross or any non-government organisations, both local and international, to inquire how you can help.
