GlobeMed at DU partners with BSDA in Kampong Cham, Cambodia, to support the health and human rights of people living with HIV/AIDS.

Who We Are // GlobeMed at University of Denver

Founded in 2011, GlobeMed at the University of Denver is one of 50 GlobeMed Chapters in the United States working to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world. We are partnered with Buddhism for Social Development Action (BSDA) in Kampong Cham, Cambodia, to provide 32 families living with HIV/AIDS with chicken pens as a sustainable means of garnering food and income.

Our Partner // Buddhism for Social Development Action (BSDA) in Kampong Cham, Cambodia

Buddhism for Social Development Action was founded in 2005 by seven Buddhist Monks who were frustrated that the local monks were preaching altruism in theory but did not employ it. The organization was formed in an attempt to find paths of peace and friendships between various groups in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge and genocide. Although led mainly by Buddhist monks, BSDA maintains religious neutrality and aims to improve communication between the various religious groups in Cambodia. The organization has a wide variety of projects ranging from agriculture and livelihood improvement to improving basic education. In the last two years since its founding in 2011, GlobeMed at DU was able to raise $7,825 for one of BSDA's projects.

Our Project //$5000 to Provide Chicken Pens as Business Venture to Families Living with HIV/AIDS

We are working with BSDA to implement a project that will provide people living with HIV/AIDS with sustainable food and income. This project involves teaching these people and providing them with the resources that are necessary for maintaining chicken pens. In the last two years, GlobeMed at DU was able to raise $7,825 for this project. Our goal is to raise $5,000 more for this project this year.
