Donations for Koh Pich Tragedy

We have good news to share with all of you regarding the donation for Koh Pich’s victims. We received $603 from a Khmer Association in Norway yesterday. An urgent donation letter was sent from a representative of that association, Heng Lihourng, only one day before receiving the money.

Heng Lihourng lives and studies in Norway. She really wanted to accompany our team wherever we went to support the victims, but did not have much time to be with us as she needed to leave for Norway only days later.

Because of the short amount of time, Bong Im and Reaksmey went with Li Hourng to the  Cambodian-Russian Friendship Hospital (Pet Russia) yesterday to meet and give some of the donation to the victims. We donated $103 for 8 victims (3 females and 5 males). Li Hourng will post all the pictures we took yesterday on her facebook. We will then copy and put in our report and on our website.

For now, may we suggest that everyone helps find the victims from provinces to provinces or somewhere else to accept the rest of our donation ($500)?

We think 2 or 3 representatives from our team can go there directly as we did in Kampong Cham province. Then we will write a short report and send it to the generous contributors.
