Volunteering at Anlung Pi
In May 2017 I had the opportunity to spend a month volunteering at the school and nursery in Anlung Pi, supporting the teachers in English language lessons, and what a fantastic opportunity it was! Despite the language barriers I felt I really got to know the children well over the course of the month, and what a fantastic group of children they are, some of the happiest and grateful children I've ever come across, and witnessing first hand what this school offers them and the better future it can provide was such an eye opening experience for me. My time in Cambodia has special place in my heart and I'll continue to support this school and similar projects in any way I can.
AFESIP Yoga Classes
We're pleased to report that thanks to the hard work and commitment of Jan, Raphael and Charlie Brazil along with support from SCC, lots of young women in the AFESIP shelter are enjoying regular yoga classes. Not only are these classes fun, they also have proven therapeutic value in helping people recover from trauma. We'd like to thank the Brazil's, Delphine at Krama Yoga, Leslie Guyton and AFESIP for making this possible.
Juliana Jennings sadly passed away in December 2016, aged 85. She was a kind and generous woman who always thought about others less fortunate than herself. She was full of compassion and kindness and was a committed supporter of SCC, giving generously to the vulnerable children. We would like to express our deepest sympathy to her family and friends, she'll be sadly missed. SCC would like to send heartfelt thanks to Juliana, on behalf of all those children she helped in Cambodia.
Donations to SCC have been made in memory of Juliana. Thank you to all those who contributed, £283 was raised.
