Story

 

Hey guys,

 

                So as some of you already know, I have spent the last couple weeks volunteering at an NGO called New Hope Cambodia. I have been so impressed by the organization that I decided to start a fundraiser due to terminate on my last day, May 9th. I have set an ambitious goal of raising 7500USD for the Outreach department – an amount that will have an enormous impact on this this small community! And because I’ve already been volunteering in Outreach for a couple weeks, I’ve also been able to put together (information below) an honest, ‘inside look’ as to what it is we do, EXACTLY what your money will be used for, and why it’s needed now.

 

A Picture From the Villiage

 

New Hope Cambodia:

 

                In 2007, situated within one of the poorest ‘slum’ areas of this war-torn country, New Hope Cambodia was born inside a makeshift, grass hut school purchased by a local Khmer, Mr. Sot Kemsour. Just seven years later, NHC now consists of a full size school, health clinic, outreach department, women’s shelter, family shelter home, training restaurant, and much more (see NHC website). Educating over 1000 children daily, and employing over 70 local Khmer staff – many of which are old NHC students – NHC runs on the model of ‘teaching people how to fish, instead of giving fish to people’, in effort “To restore hope, dignity and promise to these once proud and prosperous people.”

 

Morning Assembly Outside the School

 

Outreach department:

 

                Although the rest of NHC has its aims on education and career building, the outreach department was established in effort to combine this approach along with addressing the immediate needs of the community. We currently look after 338 sponsored families (this number grows every week), providing them with rice, sauces, garlic, and a few dollars each month.  We also coordinate the shelter homes, operate the crisis care club, and provide additional care to the community. This is where you come in. Our supply room is constantly dwindling. Currently we are out of tarps and have only a handful of mosquito nets and blankets – we are being forced to turn away people who need essential items for safe living. And with rainy reason just around the corner, all of these items are going to be at an increased demand – yet we are lacking the funds to a) prepare for this event, and b) meet with even the minimalistic demands of the present! You money will go directly to the outreach department providing support and relief, as needed, for as long as it lasts. I have put together a list below of some of the things I’ve seen distributed over the last couple weeks and the costs associated with doing so:

 

Large, high quality tarp                                                                  $25

Large, high quality mosquito net                                                 $6.5                       

Sleeping mat                                                                                   $6

Blanket                                                                                              $3.5

Bicycle                                                                                               $38        

50kg of emergency rice for unsponsored families                   $36

Bus tickets                                                                                        $8

Emergency food money                                                                 $2-5

Wash Basin                                                                                      $2.5

Fan                                                                                                     $32

Chair                                                                                                  $8.5

House repair                                                                                    ?

 

I can assure you that every dollar you donate will be used to buy either one or more of the above items, or be used for outreach staff/volunteer essentials (The gas we use for home visits and the refill of our 20L water supply, ~0.60USD/per working day, are the only two I can think of). 

 

On my first 'rice drop day' we distributed over 14 000kg of rice!

Your money is making a real difference in the lives of people who live in a (probably) much less fortunate situation than your own. 

 

Thank you so much for your support,

 

Have a nice day,

 

Rylan
