I figure that I have been served a pretty easy lot in my life and I am painfully aware that others haven't been as lucky. In mid 2018 I plan to travel to Siem Reap to volunteer with Volunteer Building Cambodia (VBC) to build a house or two for those in need.
Believe it or not, a solid house can be built for as little as $3,800 and takes only four days to build using a combination of voluteers and Cambodian builders. Raising $3,800 would mean that together we can fund at least one of the houses that I help build. Every dollar will go to VBC to provide necessary assistance even if I don't reach my goal.
So...don't buy a coffee, a wine, dinner, or a movie - help me buy a house for someone who really needs it.
You can also join me to help build the house if you are inclined - just send me a message to find out how ! Check out some further information (take particular notice of the volunteers massive smiles) on the VBC website.
Volunteer Building Cambodia is a locally run, community-driven NGO (non-government organisation), focussed on helping poor Cambodian families improve their living conditions.Founded by local Khmer man, Sinn Meang in 2014, Volunteer Building Cambodia provides poor families in rural Siem Reap with housing, wells, water pumps and toilet facilities.
