We have one more water project to report on for Sok San School north of Siem Reap. There are close to 500 children attending this school and as usual there were all the problems with lack of clean drinking water for the children of Sok San. Now that the Sok San water system is up and running, the children can look forward to better health, increased energy and concentration. A big Thank You to Lush Charity Pot for partnering with K.I.D.S. once again to make this project a reality for those Cambodian children and families.
We arrived home yesterday, after a long trip back from Cambodia and would like to send you all a big thumbs up for your amazing contributions of time, energy, donations and support for K.I.D.S. projects and programs. Though we have completed the infrastructure projects for this trip your support continues to assist children 365 days a year, as they pedal new bikes to school or walk in shoes they never had before. Your generosity feeds children daily who might not otherwise eat. Children attend daycare, elementary, and secondary schools as well as university, vocational training and computer labs. Many, many children have daily access to health and dental care through The Lake Clinic, the free clinic at the Stung Treng Women's Development Centre and Angkor Hospital for Children. There are children and families sheltered daily from the tropical sun and wet season rains between new walls and under new roofs. The donations from individuals, families, children, businesses and foundations are paying forward good health, education and hope. Over time we are seeing students and young adults paying forward the opportunities they have been given by teaching, mentoring and being role models for friends, fellow students, siblings and even parents with what they have learned.
The Sok San school water project is a milestone for all of us at K.I.D.S., it is the 10the completed water project. Through our collective, combined and ongoing efforts, we have now brought clean drinking water to over:
"5,000 children and their families"
We would like to send you all along a big thumbs up from some of the many
children and families you have supported!!
With great appreciation,
Rick and Adrianne
