Schools for Children of Cambodia are delighted with the fundraising efforts of a young volunteer from Hong Kong, Cherry Ng. Cherry volunteered with grass-roots school Feeding Dreams Cambodia for ten weeks.
During that time Cherry was inspired to create a justgiving fundraising page and set herself a target of $2000 (USD).
Cherry said: I am currently in Siem Reap volunteering for the grassroots charity Feeding Dreams Cambodia which primarily provides educational support for the children from the poorest areas in Siem Reap. So far I have had the opportunity to teach the children and visit some of the villages they are from. Other than witnessing the heart-breaking conditions the families have to survive in (no electricity, no clean water and extremely poor sanitation facilities), I was also deeply saddened to see the ongoing reality every poor family has to face here. Cherry's friends and family were so touched by her heartfelt plea and the dire situation faced by the students of Feeding Dreams, that within weeks she has surpassed her target!
To date Cherry has raised $2,618.74
