Case Study - Project HALO strengthening community coping mechanisms

By Craig Greenfield

Servants to Asia’s Urban Poor is an international network of Christian teams living and working in Asia’s city slums. We strive to do small things with great love – to empower the poor to help themselves. Servants entered Cambodia in 1993, under an agreement with the Ministry of Health to provide health services in the poorest district of Phnom Penh. As well as initiating a number of health and development programs, we have tried to live amongst the poor, sharing their lives, their joys and their struggles.
