Cambodia

Out of sight, but not out of mind

Packed along the edge of the Mekong delta in Phnom Penh are hundreds of shacks, providing shelter to families who struggle day-to-day to make a living. The nearby rubbish tips – which scar the horizon, stretching for miles – are their only source of income where they root through waste with toxic fumes to find things to sell. Many children die here — either from the fumes, polluted water surrounding them, or the huge trucks which pay no heed to them.

Mission Direct and Pastor Sara’s Serve Cambodia have built three villages since our partnership began in 2007; The MD teams are well-known and well-loved by the local people here and you’ll receive an unforgettable greeting.

The Projects

In 2023, you will be working with our partner Serve Cambodia at Light of Hope School, located in Takeo Province (outside Phnom Penh) to build a toilet block. The Light of Hope School serves a poor community providing a route out of poverty for the children who are born there. Currently there is no separation of toilets for male and female students, which can sometimes cause female students to not feel safe during their use of the toilet.

These new toilet facilities will directly benefit 130 beneficiaries, 375 indirect beneficiaries, making a total of 505 beneficiaries.

Rest and Relaxation

We’ll travel to Siem Reap for a couple of day where you can visit the Killing Fields and learn about the genocide that took place in the 1970’s killing nearly a third of Cambodia’s population. We’ll also visit the Angkor Wat temple complex, which is the World’s largest collection of temples and designate by the United Nations as a World heritage site.
