Busy Times for Helping Hand

One of the purposes of Helping Hand is to help sponsors to get to know their sponsored children as much as possible. So when one of the sponsors actually said that they wanted to come to Cambodia and visit their sponsored child it was with much enthusiasm and excitement that things were arranged. Elayne was the first to sponsor through Helping Hand (that in itself is another story for another day as to how God works) and she flew over 6,000 miles to meet Sokunkim and his family who live in a slum in the south of Phnom Penh. I know that all involved were blessed by Elayne’s visit and she is planning on coming back to visit again.

Another of the things that Helping Hand also does is to enable people to donate monies so that rice can be bought for families in the slums here in Phnom Penh. It may not see much to many but here it is the basic needs that need addressing first, namely food and shelter.p1110022

 

£15 a month can provide a good amount of rice for a family here in the slums of Phnom Penh. If you would like to consider donating or have any questions about the work that we do please feel free to contact us at helping.hand.cambodia@gmail.com

With monies donated Helping Hand was able to treat the children sponsored to a day out at the zoo. Tamao Zoo is about an hour and a half drive from Phnom Penh and each child was able to take 3 others with them, either friends or family so along with helpers and translators we had just under 70 in all.Lunch was provided along with water. The children were so well behaved and we all had such a great time. Taking these children on such a trip was such a blessing to those who went and a big thank you to those who contributed to this “Grand Day Out”.Taking all these children to the zoo involved a lot of organisation and a big thank you also goes to Chanthy Chen for coordinating this.p1110143
