Cambodia

Out of the Delta and into a home

On the edge of the contaminated Mekong River Delta in Cambodia there is a small pocket of land, rife with disease and poverty, which ‘houses’ thousands of families. We’ve been supporting Cambodian Pastor Sara Sansy to build somewhere safe for these people to really call home.

 

Please note that the trip dates may vary a day either way due to flight availability.

The Projects

Mornings: Mission Direct and Pastor Sara’s Fellowship of Hope have built three villages, removing families from the dumps on the Delta, where people die exposed to toxic fumes as they pick through the rubbish for something to sell. You will be building a home, allowing Sara to call more people into a place of safety.

Afternoon: You will visit and help at a number of community projects in the region, for example, hair-washing of children in the slums or meeting girls rescued from the sex trade.

Rest and Relaxation

As well as watching the sunrise over the ancient Angkor Wat Temple (a breath-taking sight!) you’ll also explore some of Cambodia’s solemn history with an optional visit to the Killing Fields and the notorious Tao Sleng prison (November team will have an alternative visit more local to the project site).
