A Little Goes a Long Way in Cambodia

Off to the Tamao Zoo!

At Riverkids, we choose to work with the most difficult parents and children. The children are at the highest risk of child labour, illegal adoption and sex work.

But many, many of these parents are loving parents who would never let go of their children to trafficking and brothels. They save their meals for their children and that is why the food and nutrition program is so important to support the families we work with.

Some families are resilient. When we arrange for free medication to treat the parents' HIV condition, they gradually recover and once they are able to work, they get back up on their feet quickly and the family will be alright.

For some other families, we have to keep going back to them over and over again, knocking on their doors persistently but gently to say, "There's hope for your future. We have a better plan." 

The promise we make to our families is -- we will never give up on you.

No amount of volunteering or donation for Riverkids is too small. We count every blessing and that’s how January 2012's work was possible. Our families aren't giving up because you're behind them. 

We need to raise $5,000 from 40 unique donors by 31 May 2012 so that we have a chance to fund the rest of the year's food program of $59,000 on Global Giving. This will also qualify us for a permanent spot on UK’s Global Giving. For a small organisation like ours in Cambodia, this means a lot to us! Donate and share our page with your friends. Thank you.

It's play time!
