We hope all is well with you and yours. Well it is that time of year when we head back over to Cambodia. We are looking forward to once again seeing our friends, the kids and communities that K.I.D.S. works with and supports. We recently had our annual fundraiser and we "THANK EVERYONE" who attended and offered their support and generosity through music, donations for the silent auction, volunteering and for donating towards bathrooms, bikes, clean water and computers. We also thank Sumalee Martinflatt and Maya Harbo for their inspiring presentations.
We recently were able to buy more bikes for kids to get to school in rural Cambodia. Each year we try to buy as many as we can as it often means the difference between getting an education or working as a child labourer. So we are off to a good start!
Things are under way in Cambodia with the materials for three new homes ordered, and construction to begin within days. We have also been in contact with the water experts and they are making preparations for the construction of at least two more clean drinking water projects at rural schools. K.I.D.S. will also be building as many bathrooms as we can, putting in computer labs, assisting with healthcare, the girl's home, kindergartens and much more.
We look forward to keeping you posted on the difference we are making together to improve the lives of children, families and communities. We wish you and yours the very best,
Until Next Time
Adrianne and Rick
