We wanted to say thank you again for you support and donations to our food program and helping to make sure that children and youth in education and training programs have a healthy, hot lunch.
Lunchtime is one of the busiest times of the day at M’Lop Tapang’s Education Center. Since you can’t be here to see it for yourself we put together a very short video that I hope you will enjoy viewing and give you a glimpse into how your donations are used (and a few cooking tips if you ever have to prepare lunch for 500 hungry kids). The link to the video is at the bottom of this letter.
Your support is truly making a difference for children like 13 year old Vibol and his two younger brothers. There are among the hundreds of children that are receiving nutritious hot lunches. These three brothers come from a very poor family and until recently were not going to school but are now in our education program to help them catch up with their studies. Knowing that they can have a hot lunch is a big incentive for coming to class every day.
I wanted to write and say thank you again for your donations that are helping vulnerable children here in Sihanoukville that M’Lop Tapang works with.
Because of your generosity, children like 10-year old Lavouch* is going to school for the first time ever. From an early age his parents noticed that the young boy had difficulty learning and were always afraid to send him to school because they were concerned that he would have problems with the other children and get into fights. Instead of going to school Lavouch stayed at home by himself and his dog while his parents went to work. Last month Lavouch joined a designated class at our Education Center for children with learning and behavioral problems. His teachers report that there have not been any problems with other children in the class, his parents are very happy for him to be finally starting school, and Lavouch is making new friends.

Your gifts have helped us to provide emergency shelter, medical care, sports and arts, education and training, counseling, family support and protection from abuse for thousands of disadvantaged children and their families and I am very happy to share M’Lop Tapang’s 2016 Annual Report with you that explains how in a little more detail . There is a link to the report at the bottom of this letter.
Again, from all of us at M’Lop Tapang, thank you so very much for your support. As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hello from Cambodia!
I just wanted to write to say thank you again for the donations you’ve made to help support the work we do here at M’Lop Tapang.
With your help we continue to be able to provide assistance to thousand of vulnerable children and youth so that they can have a better future; children like 11 year old Chan Mao*, one of the newest children in classes at our Education Center who had to stop going to school before but is now back in a classroom trying to catch up with his studies so he can return to a local public school; and Kosal*, a young man from a very poor family who recently graduated from our vocational training program and now has a safe, steady job.
