Volunteering with CCF in early 2015 gave me the chance to see first-hand the amazing work being done by CCF in the Steung Meanchey community. As well as educating and caring for more than 2,200 children, CCF operates a broad spectrum of community services that support the families to keep the kids in school. The staff really do ‘work from the heart’, with an underlying belief that CCF children can be the next generation of Cambodian leaders. It is clear that CCF's work with these kids is truly life changing - breaking the cycle of poverty and providing them with the opportunities they deserve.
My husband and I and three of our friends have just returned from an awe inspiring trip to
CCF . It has been a couple of years since we have been to Phnom Penh and toured the facilities at CCF and all of us were absolutely blown away by what Scott is doing and what he has accomplished since our last visit . From the moment you set foot in any of CCF's facilities, you are taken by the feeling of joy, energy and health that comes from the children. Scott has taken the most impoverished, malnourished, uneducated and uncared for children and turned them into happy, healthy, eager to learn leaders of Cambodia. Not only is he helping the children, but also the community at large, through his health services and water programs . This is a man who has put together an amazing staff and programs to serve the poorest of the poor in Cambodia , and his success rate is remarkable.
We are honored to know Scott and support him, and we are proud to sing his praises whenever and wherever we can.
Thank you .
Review from CharityNavigator
I got involved with Cambodian Children's Fund two years ago as a sponsor to seven girls. During three trips to Phnom Penh I have seen firsthand the profound impact CCF has had on their lives, and those of all the other CCF children, all of whom are among the poorest and most at-risk children in Cambodia. I have also seen how efficiently CCF uses each donated dollar so I agreed to joined the Board of Directors last November. Scott Neeson, the Executive Director of CCF, was president of Sony Pictures International prior to founding CCF in 2004. Since then, CCF has grown to incorporate three separate facilities, where over 300 children receive nutrition, housing, medical care, and a comprehensive educational program.
