Living in the shadow of the Khmer Rouge atrocities, Cambodia continues to suffer from the years of famine, destruction and violence. Everything was demolished during the wars and a lot people continue to suffer, especially the orphaned children who have lost their parents to land-mines, disease or poverty.
Many Cambodians living in rural areas still lack the basics needs of life. Less than 16% of people have access to improved sanitation facilities, only 31% of rural Cambodians have access to clean & safe drinking water, and many live on incomes of less than $10 per month. To these people, foreign support is essential.
It is possible to include some volunteering into any itinerary or to design a program with a specific project in mind. If you are interested in making a difference through an NGO, please contact us for suggestions and options.
