Hello friends, family and guests of "Les Néréides"!
Since 2011, our holiday rentals have generated an annual donation of 800 to 1000 euros so that Cambodian children in need can live and grow in a safe family environment. They need our support as much as ever, but with Covid, our bookings have raised just 220 euros.
Here, you can donate a small part of what you may not have spent on a foreign holiday this year, and help us reach our usual amount. We have all lost a lot in 2020, but hope is around the corner. Let’s make sure the children of Krousar Thmey can enjoy some of that hope too!
Thank you from them and from us, for whatever you can contribute.
Best wishes for the holidays and for a bright and better New Year,
Suzanne & Jean-François
Presentation of the project
The project aims to support a family house in Cambodia in order to help marginalized children to be reintegrated into their families and society, through emotional, educational, and material support. The family house in question (named "Kpop Veng") welcomes street children who have suffered from important trauma into a safe environment, tailored to their needs, while providing them with the resources and care they require to become independent and responsible adults.
Born in 1991 in the Site II refugee camp in Thailand, Krousar Thmey (“New family” in Khmer) is the first Cambodian foundation helping underprivileged children. Its mission is to enable the integration of underprivileged children into Cambodian society through education and support adapted to their needs, with respect to their traditions and beliefs.
Kpop Veng family house is one of the four family houses run by Krousar Thmey in 2020. The house opened in 1999 and is located in the city of Takhmao, in the suburbs of Phnom Penh in Cambodia. Sokhy, the mother in charge of the family house, has been working with Krousar Thmey since 1999, which demonstrates her reliability and provides a sense of security to the children. After 20 years, she is always enthusiastic and still passionate about her work.
Currently, the house welcomes 8 children (4 boys and 4 girls).
How will the funds be used?
The funds will be used to support the education, health, hygiene, nutrition, as well as cultural and recreational activities for the children of the Kpop Veng family house. For instance, a contribution of:
- 5$ covers the expenses allowing the children to do gardening for a month
- 10$ covers the price of school uniforms for one child for one year
- 37$ covers the food for one child for one month
- 50$ covers extra English classes for the children for one month
Thank you again for your support !
