It has been about one month since I last posted a blog and about two months since I actually wrote one myself…..too long. So here is a catch up of what has been happening with Helping Hand Cambodia during the last few weeks (a lot !!) told mostly by pictures……
Sem Somonin came first in his class for his extra English studies. Well done, his parents are so proud of him.
A friend of mine organised for her and her work colleagues to come and have some fun and play games with the children in the slum. They played football and other games and left gifts for the children to play with after they left. Thank you Thoeun and your friends 🙂
It was so nice to see Kate back in Cambodia again, this time with her eldest daughter. Kate and her friends sponsor one of the girls in the slum to go to Beltei International School and during their trip around Cambodia spent time with her sponsored child in the slum and others that they help and support.
Ra Kanha came 3rd in her class this term out of 35; well done you work very hard and are always in the top 3 for your class grading.
The charity was Blessed when a supporter donated 3 IPads for the children’s use. Not only this but she also raised over £600 just by selling her second hand books at her local Church!!
The charity was also Blessed to have James Reihl come and visit and give out football kits and other items. He also introduced a family to Jenga.
James returned a couple of weeks later with his brother Patrick…..this time they brought Uno…
A friend of Helping Hand Cambodia is going to do a sponsored run for us to help raise money to equip the new building that we will be moving into at the start of September. He will be running 100 Km at the end of August as we try to raise £2,000 for tables, chairs. a projector, computers etc. Please see our Just Giving Page for The South Coast Challenge for more information or follow Chris Miller’s training on our Facebook Page for this sponsored event.
A friend of Chanthy’s was good enough to donate some clothes to those in the slums.
It was Morn Sreymait and Phan Him Leng who got the awards for the two most improved students in their class grading over the last two months. Well done !!
A friend of mine who has her own clothing business has said that she will award bags to any student that gets in the top three of their class grading each month. Well done to the four young girls who achieved this. Thank you Channy.
We were also Blessed when we we donated some unwanted school books from a friend who works at one of the bigger schools here in Phnom Penh. Thank you Dave as this helps us a lot.
