We have already been able to use some of the funds for the purchase of new desks for Sohing's small school which is about 15km out of town. Previously the students gathered around one table to do their school work and learning now they enjoy gathering around the desks more comfortably, making for a more enjoyable learning experience.
Sohing and the children wanted us to thank all of you who supported the fundraiser
smile emoticon Thanks so much...this will make a huge difference to them
Also a couple of weeks ago, a devastating storm hit the town of Siem Reap and impacted the town greatly. Barb and Chris have visited homes that have been completely destroyed by the storm and the families will need a lot of support to rebuild their lives. Therefore, we will be using some of the funds from the KICK fundraiser to help families rebuild their homes and their lives. We are grateful to your contributions and the people of Siem Reap thank you for the chance to be able to start over.
I am currently on my way to Bhutan with a few airport transfers to go yet but looking forward to reuniting with running friends for around the world, forging new friendships and immersing myself in the culture and people of Bhutan. Chris and Barb and my friend Kelly will keep you posted with updates in regards to the race over the next week.
A big thank you to Barb and Chris who are currently ensuring that the funds are being dispersed where they need to be. They work tirelessly and enthusiastically for the people of Siem Reap. We appreciate all that you do Barb and Chris!!!
Thanking you you all for your love and support and sending you all blessings and well wishes X
