Growing up can be scary, even if you live in a wealthy country with unemployment benefits, free healthcare, free world-class educational opportunities and disability / aged pensions. But for most children growing up in Cambodia right now, they face the daunting pressures to help their parents provide for the family, while also figuring out how they might one day rescue their whole family from a life of poverty and struggle - without any outside support.

Serve Cambodia’s education, health care and community development projects are powered by the love and support of those who have already been blessed with opportunity. None of this work would be happening without the sacrifices and contributions of so many kind people, most of whom are never publicly recognised. But Serve Cambodia’s staff working on the ground can see the impact of that support on each child and their family, and are so grateful for the lives that are being transformed in their community.

Each day we can see the difference that you are making in these special people’s lives, as their futures are slowly being transformed. The joy and relief in their faces is clear to see, because they are being given love, hope and the prospect of a better future. If you have been supporting Serve Cambodia already through prayer, practical help or your donations then we thank you and we thank God for you. If not, then we invite you to join us in creating new futures among the poor in Cambodia.

More resources are needed to support this work during 2016. Please consider supporting Serve Cambodia in the following ways during the remaining 7 months of this year, partnering with us to give Cambodian children and their families hope and a bright future:

          * praying for God’s continuing provision, including the success of our new Goat Farms which given time to grow will assist with the sustainable generation of income that can be reinvested into helping to fund Serve Cambodia’s other projects

          * finding a friend who will sponsor a child or a staff member in the Education centres. We are aiming to get more than 100 further students sponsored this year. Student sponsorship is A$45 per month, and staff sponsorship ranges from A$100 – A$175 per month

          * giving a one off donation to help cover this year’s current operational shortfall (equivalent to A$6,000 per month at present) that is not currently covered by ongoing sponsorships

          * donating towards the construction of the third and final stage at Light of Hope Centre, which will cost around A$52,000

If you know someone who is interested in sponsoring a student they can email us at: sponsorships@servecambodia.net

If you would like to make a donation online you can do so via our partner ACCIR here (please note the donation as being for “Fundraising Appeal”): http://www.accirelief.org.au/wr084

Serve Cambodia has been working to build the shelter for those are hopeless and homeless as we want to demonstrate God’s love for them. Lately, we went to a dump village called Derm Khnor where is located in the southern area of Phnom Penh.

In this locality, we met many people who are living in squalid & cramped condition and some are homeless and living under the tree. Moreover, they are earning the money about USD$2.50 a day through pick up the recycle stuffs like plastic and cans to sell. They have to go to the dump at 4pm till 4 am, and they rest at the daytime.

So Serve Cambodia worked with an Organization called Mission Direct from England, to build the 8 bamboo houses for people who live under the trees.

We have spent for 4 days to build those houses, so we dig the holes to put the pillars, make the structure of house and then we nail the bamboo and tin.

After we built the house, people are very delighted to have it for their families and they will not stay outside or stay under tree at the night time like before or get any harm from something as well.

Please continue to pray to those people who are homeless like them more and more, they really need to have the proper shelter and security for their family. We would like to say Thank You for Mission Direct to make this thing happened in Cambodia.
