12 months into the pandemic, how are Cambodians faring?
Last year, the COVID-19 crisis broke the downward global trend in extreme poverty set in motion since 1997. For the first time in over 20 years, we have seen a dramatic increase in extreme poverty, with up to 100 million people added to the existing population of 648 million in 2019. Many of these affected people are in countries already struggling with high poverty rates.
Cambodia has been disproportionately affected by COVID-19, despite being relatively unaffected by the health aspects during the first 12 months of the pandemic due to factors including its trade exposure and reliance on remittances from international workers.

Help QSA to support rural communities recover from COVID-19
Many communities are faring worse today than they were a year ago. Even if not directly impacted by COVID-19, they have been affected by disruptions to the markets and systems that support their livelihoods, and often there is insufficient information or healthcare facilities in rural regions. The number of COVID cases and deaths are not being recorded accurately in some countries, making it extremely difficult to contain and prevent the spread.
