Our 9th trip is on the 1st May 2010 for two months and we will be visiting the 21 Families at the New Life Village at Ou Dong which is just over 40km north of Phnom Penh to see their progress. We have contact with the Pastor of the village Simon and he is recovering from Typhoid Fever. Which is a preventative illness. Better hygiene will need to be discussed with them. We will be taking soaps for each family and explaining that washing their hands before cooking /eating this will reduce the risk of illness.

Also we will be coming alongside International Childrens' Care, which have a project 3hour out of PP with an orphanage and school. They are currently working on agriculture plots that will be able to support not only the orphanage/school but the 30 small villages near by. So we will go and see this project and assist . My years doing Kid's Club will come in handy to play games with the orphans and do craft, read stories and show some love.

We will be visiting a church that is looking after 40 HIV orphans and helping there. You know when I think about my own children having the love of a mum and these boys and girls growing up without that... makes me feel very sad. Then very determined to do something about it. I have heard other projects that house the children with house mothers. I believe children should be brought up in a home with a mother and father – to grow up balanced adults. That's a challenge that needs to be met.

We're always looking for people to come along, so feel free to contact us if you're interested.
