2012 Fundraising Appeal

Well can you believe that a whole month of 2012 has flown by already??!! It’s been an exciting month in Cambodia, especially for Pastor Sara & Sochea who celebrated the birth of their second baby daughter, Karis, earlier this month!


As we step into the new year it’s been time to plan for the future, and this has seen us create quite a large list of financial needs for the projects we are undertaking. This can be quite a scary task if we look at it through our own eyes, but we know that through God’s eyes nothing is impossible, so would you please pray with us for provision in the following areas this year?


1. As our work continues to grow so does our need for staff to fulfill all the tasks that need to be completed, so we are hoping to find sponsorship for an Administration / Accounts worker to assist Sochea (especially now that she has a new baby to take care of), 1 new teacher at Harvest of Hope, 3 cooks and 2 cleaners across our 3 education centres. These staff can be sponsored for AUD$150 per month per staff member.

2. We still need to find sponsors for 6 children at Tarsha’s Legacy Centre and 24 at Harvest of Hope. These sponsorships cost AUD$40 per month.

3. Donations are needed to pay for Serve Cambodia’s annual staff training retreat mid-year. This costs AUD$4,300.

4. An LCD projector and screen are needed to assist with training, meetings and presentations. This will cost AUD$1,200 to buy in Cambodia.

5. Donations are needed to help cover Serve Cambodia’s unfunded operational expenses for 2012, without which our community development projects simply can’t run. These costs include outreach at the Light of Hope education centre, transportation costs, staff health insurance, internet connections, public liability and building insurance, uniforms, community work in Happy Village and Prey Sor, family seminars etc. The total cost of these is about AUD$19,000.

6. Although the building project at Prey Sor (near Harvest of Hope) and Happy Village is already underway, to build homes for the families from Kian Klieng, we still need more donations to ensure this construction work can be completed. Each home/unit will cost AUD$5,000.

7. Once these homes are complete we will need to transport these families and their belongings to their new community. It will cost us AUD$1,300 to hire trucks for this.

8. In order to improve security for the families at Happy Village and Prey Sor we would like to provide better outdoor lighting at these communities. This will cost AUD$300.


As you can see this is quite a long list! Can you please pray with us that the finances arrive to meet these needs? If you are able to help in any way we would love for you to contact us at enquiries@fellowshipofhope.net, or simply make a donation by following the instructions on our website here http://www.fellowshipofhope.net/getting-involved/donations/. Donations towards all of these needs are tax deductible to Australian residents by using the code WR084 when you make your payment through ACCIR.


A large part of our focus this year is on building our sustainability projects (like the sewing project at Happy Village), so that in future our work will be able to fund itself in Cambodia without relying so heavily on donations from overseas. We would love for you to pray with us that God will give us wisdom in this area, to improve our current projects and provide new ideas for further projects we can develop to assist with this.


We look forward to seeing how this year progresses, and will keep you updated with regular blog posts so you can watch with excitement with us as we see God provide for these needs. Thanks again so much for your continued faithful support of this life changing work. We really appreciate your prayers, encouragement and financial contribution. God bless!
