Cambodian Children's Fund
October 11, 2012
12 months ago I first travelled to Cambodia with a group of close friends. Apart from visiting the amazing temples at Angkor Wat, our visit was also to learn about the plight of vulnerable children in a country that is struggling to recover, repair and rebuild after the atrocities inflicted upon them during the brutal Pol Pot regime. So touched was our group that we have just returned home from a second Cambodian visit during which time we were introduced to Scott Neeson and the incredible team of staff and supporters at Cambodian Children's Fund (CCF) in Phnom Penh. Never in my life have I been so touched than by the amazing work this group are doing to make a real and enduring change to the lives of innocent children. We arrived at CCF's Childcare facility in Phnom Pen to be greeted by Scott Neeson, a tall slender man in wellington boots with a smile that instantly made you feel welcome. Surrounding Scott and constantly coming up to hug him with beaming smiles were the children in the Centre. I was overwhelmed by the number of kids in CCF's care and by how they all came up to us with a welcoming smile, often taking our hand to walk us through the centre. To my amazement, Scott knew each and every one of the kid's names and the situation that brought them into the care of the CCF. If I can achieve anything in these words, let it be absolute reassurance that the work the good people at CCF are undertaking for these kids is real, is life-changing and will stay with me for the rest of my life.
