Don’t waste a good crisis

There is a saying “Don’t waste a good crisis” meaning that even in the worst situations there are probably opportunities to take advantage of. There are many signs of that all over Phnom Penh now as offices, schools, and other organizations–closed by COVID-19—are using the time and lack of people and activities to renovate offices, decorate buildings, etc.

A workman at a school hauls out a bag of construction rubble as they modify classrooms inside while the students are home because of the pandemic.
The Church of the Child Jesus uses the time in a similar fashion,
redoing some small offices and toilets.
