The Maryknoll Deaf Development Programme is the only organization in Cambodia established to try to serve the needs of all deaf people, of every age, in every part of the country. As the programs and activities of DDP increase and spread, more deaf people approach DDP and bring with them a wide variety of problems. The Social Services Project now has two social workers, one in Phnom Penh and the other in Kampong Cham, and they deal with every sort of difficulty from AIDS to legal situations to family problems and personal difficulties requiring counseling. While based in Phnom Penh and Kampong Cham, the social workers make many trips to other provinces to assist deaf people in difficulty.
