Providing Support for for Cambodian School Kids
I"ve been volunteering at Khnar Primary School near Siem Reap, Cambodia for several years. The children there suffer a kind of poverty that most Americans cannot even imagine. These are adorable, hardworking children who live in a country with no safety nets.
We have a lot of fun doing art, science and hula in my classes, but they are always hungry, and hungry kids have a hard time focusing and learning.
The Ponheary Ly Foundation can can provide 67 meals for just $10. That's right, 67 meals! Or help them to get to school: a sturdy bike costs on $40.
As holidays approach, I think of my kids and how little money can improve their chance of success. Just think about it; you can feed 67 kids some real food for the price of two fancy Hallmark Greeting cards!
