June 1st is International Children’s Day, a day to raise awareness of issues related to children. To mark this important day in a country where the issues of poverty, exploitation, lack of education and opportunity are real issues for some children, we wanted to give back. A quick call for donations resulted in enough money to buy study materials for 50 children, whose families cannot always afford them.
We presented our contribution to Ms Kimhieng Sim, Flame Cambodia Project Coordinator, for distribution to children in their programs. This also provided our staff with an opportunity to find out how they can get involved in ongoing programs within the community.
