When I visited Cambodia almost 10 years ago I was struck by the warmness of the people but also the abject poverty contrasted with the opulence of the Royal grounds. People were living in 5 metre squared huts covered with nothing more than bark whilst, being the wet season, it poured rain several times a day. Cambodia also has one of the highest rates of child abuse in the world. And so, when i started practicing I felt like I lived in the most fortunate country in the world and wanted to donate a portion of my profits each month to a worthy child charity.
Sunrise Cambodia began with Australian woman Geraldine Cox providing shelter for displaced war orphans in the 1990s. It then expanded to several orphanages for a range of children from orphans to the disabled to those escaping child abuse. These days Sunrise Cambodia has grown to support whole communities with healthcare, clean water, sanitation and education facilities so that families can prosper.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause.
