A Visit To The Cambodia Development Organisation's Orphanage

This is a video of a wonderful day that I spent with my dear friends, Minty and Linda, at the Cambodian Development Organisation's Orphanage, where we threw a party for the children.

The orphanage provides 24 hour care and shelter to 21 children from poor and deceased families. The children in the orphanage all come from backgrounds of extreme poverty and deprivation. They range in age from two years to 14 years. Many have never been to school and are desperate for a safe and loving home. The orphanage provides three meals a day and ensures that all children are attend a government school.

In addition, the orphanage runs its own classes in Khmer reading and writing, as well as English language. The organisers also believe in preserving Khmer culture, so they teach the children traditional dance, as well as tuition in playing traditional Khmer musical instruments.

If you wish to support the orphanage, please contact
Mr. Sean Samnang (General Director) at cdo_orphanage@yahoo.com.
