History of the Liahona Children's Foundation in Cambodia

The Kingdom of Cambodia spans timeless landscapes of dazzling rice paddies, fabled temple ruins and the chaotic capitol of Phnom Penh. It's a favorite modern tourist destination. It also has extreme poverty and malnutrition. 80% or more of the children screened in Phnom Pehn in 2012 were starving, with quite a few on the verge death from starvation. In some cases, 5-year-olds weighed the same as 1 1/2-year-olds. As a result, the first LCF nutrition programs in Cambodia were quickly filled and we had to turn people away from the initial screenings.
