Let us prevent the Swine Flu into Cambodia

The best medicine to swine flu so far is prevention. Let us work together – Cambodians and foreigners in Cambodia – to prevent any spread of the sickness in the provinces. It is not the only duty of authorities but from everybody.

Information is a good way to communicate any tip of protection. Please make the tips available in Khmer language for any community. NGOs, officials, schools and universities, the media, any space of communities in Cambodia, should know all the rules of prevention.

Phone messages, emails, skype, any mean of communication is useful to make the tips available to everybody. Let us stop together the enemy.
