Compassion Advocacy Network extends into Cambodia. Officially, the Kingdom of Cambodia, is a country located in the southern portion of the Indochinese peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is 181,035 square kilometers (69,898 square miles) in area, bordered by Thailand to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Vietnam to the east and the Gulf of Thailand to the southwest.
Each year C.A.N. clocks thousands of volunteer hours of either visitation, activity, or educational involvement. Each month C.A.N. helps improve the quality of life for hundreds of families throughout Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida. The C.A.N. Help! Program increased the amount of supplemented food and toiletries for 550 people per month and provided masks and cleaning supplies to assist with COVID 19 safety. This program also kept two adults with learning disabilities and autism spectrum disorder from homelessness by providing them housing, utilities, and groceries.
The program also gave out clothing, medical supplies, and medical equipment. The program gave over 1,000,000 items of food, clothing, personal care & household products distributed to hospice children, cancer ward children, battered women, nursing home residents, isolated elderly in income-based housing, AIDS recovery persons, single parents, homeless individuals, and disadvantaged veterans. This program also helped with cell phone formatting and use coaching.
