Cambodia House Build

$760 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 13 people in 6 months
We are a group of like minded Perth people who, in conjunction with NGO Volunteer Building Cambodia (VBC), are improving the lives of poor villagers is Siem Reap. As in 2017, again this year a group is traveling to Siem Reap and in a week, building a new house for a poor family and dramatically improving their lives.

Each house costs US$3000 in materials and labour is provided by us and supplemented by local building volunteers from VBC.

In addition to houses, money donated is used to build communal toilets, wells for water and contribution towards a community centre that provides English classes for the local children.

Our next trip is in June 2019 and we aim to build at least one house but with your help, who knows what we can achieve.

By making even a small donation, you can help to change the life of a poor family in Siem Reap.

Check out VBC Facebook page to see how they are delivering real improvements to the poor villagers of Siem Reap.

Hi All
We're back from our house build. In 4 days we built a new house for a poor family of 7. How poor ? As a laborer, the husband may bring home about $5 a day.

With your generous donations, we purchased the following 'add-ons' for the family:
1. A small solar power system comprising a small panel, battery, 3 lights and a ceiling fan. The intention is to facilitate the children doing homework in the evening.
2. Two bikes to get the children to school. The family had one bike between them and the children had to walk to school.
3. A welcome package consisting of 50kg rice and a range of household utensils to get them going in the new house.

Here's the VBC report at the end of our build. and a photos attached too.

"Our mission is over, it is time to say goodbye. What’s left deep into everybody’s heart is emotions, happiness and good karma.

It is now the family duty to create new memories and focus on moving forward with the newly built house (#264) as they promised.

Our volunteers have also put together with donations as well. Those included two bikes which will make the children to get to school easier - as most of the time they went by walking. The donation also came with 50kg of rice and some other house supplies to use to enhance their daily life quality. We also would like to mention the solar system which was installed yesterday.

This would not be possible without our volunteers and a massive thank to a group from Australia James Boyes, Ross Hepden, Alan Holmes, Michelle Boyes, Robert Boyes, Roger Kent, Joshua Kent and Neil Ashley from Australia who volunteered with us physically and financially towards this project.

And of course our incredible builder Mr. Bunthoeun for leading this project along with the family and the locals who assisted in the build.

It was a life-changing experience to everyone. VBC would like to appreciate everyone who keep believing in our organization to change the lives in our community."

Hello everyone. The team is all booked to be on site in Siem Reap for our house build starting on the 24th June. Thanks to your kind donations, we will also fund a toilet for the village (look out for photos). We have also had some tools donated by Bunnings Vic Park AND some pencils, etc donated for the Community Centre School. So all up, between the 8 builders, all of you and others, we will be making a huge improvement in the lives of several villagers.
