Lucky Iron Fish are donated to our students
We are grateful to Lucky Iron Fish for partnering with our school as a test site for distributing the iron fish that they have created to alleviate widespread anemia. Iron deficiency affects 60% of pregnant Cambodian women. luckyironfish.com
This program was made possible by the fundraising efforts of Boston teen, Doug Robbins. Thank you, Doug!
175 Lucky Iron Fish (LIF) were donated to families with children in our school, together with 10g of rice, during a special event to introduce LIF to parents in May, 2016.
Our teachers made two pots of soup for the family event — one with LIF and one without — to demonstrate that the LIF does not affect the taste of food.
Thanks to Doug Robbin’s fundraising efforts, we were able to initiate the program by distributing one Lucky Iron Fish to each family in the school. Our goal is to donate a LIF to each incoming student in the 7th grade every year so that their progress with using and benefiting from the LIF can be monitored and supported by our teachers.
If you would like to help support Doug’s fundraising efforts, please click here to make a donation and specify that this is the program that you want to support. A $25 donation will bring a LIF to 10 families.
Thank you, Doug Robbins!
