The phone call saving hundreds of lives in Cambodia

Every year Cambodians experience at least one extreme weather event. Millions of people are affected, but one phone call can save hundreds of lives.

A “1294” call in Cambodia can reach 1,000 households in only 1 minute. Thanks to EU Humanitarian Aid and People in Need, the “1294” early warning system will be available countrywide in 2020.

Every year, EU Humanitarian Aid supports projects that make communities safer around the world.
