We recently joined some of our Shoe and Sight Giving Partners in Cambodia, a country we’ve been giving in since 2010, and found ourselves completely taken aback.
We expected to immerse ourselves in the rugged details, get our hands dirty with our Giving Partners, and gain a better understanding of our partners’ programs.
In Phnom Penh, our group joined student leaders at Cambodian Children’s Fund as they taught their peers about healthy habits and distributed new shoes to children living in the Steung Meanchey landfill. In Battambang, we met with Seva Foundation (our first Sight Giving Partner). They not only provide eye care services, but also employ community outreach workers to reach those who may not have access to the care they need. Our intention to learn on this trip was met, and we’re looking forward to sharing more about these two partners over the next few months.
What we didn’t expect, however, was to also be completely enveloped in such beautiful landscapes and curious sounds; there were foggy mornings over ancient temples, and bright, clear afternoons paired with green fields. Upon arrival back home, we put together these reminders of the natural beauty of Cambodia to share with our team, and now with you!
