While on a bus from Bangkok to Siem Reap, I met a young woman named Kathleen from Australia. She was a fundraiser for an organization called Big Heart Project. The purpose of their existence is to identify communities and individuals who are living in conditions where basic necessities are scarce, opportunities are limited and many freedoms are inhibited, they then dedicate their time to educate these communities in a holistic way. The main focus is to prevent children from entering prostitution and situations of slavery and abuse in the first place. Where they can, they also rescue, rehabilitate, care for and educate girls leaving child prostitution and sexual slavery.
I gave my daily gift to Kathleen who had come to Cambodia to deliver funds that she had collected for the purpose of purchasing land and building an orphanage in Phnom Penh. They need about $13,000.00 USD for the land and another $20,000 for the building. Hopefully my gift helped her meet her goal in some small way.
