Help- Road to orphanage washed out!

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 24 November 2005 | Views [1074]

With only a week to go, there is still much to get done,  but i think we are ready, got the booster jabs, the visas, so now just got to get there.

Part of the long terrm plan for The Orphanage Experience is to build a trust to act as a safety net for the orphanages, a body they can approach when something unexpected happens which they then need funding for; for urgent medical car for a child, new water pipes, wages for a staff member.

Last night I received an email from the coordinator of the orphange in Cambodia with an appeal for help of this nature. The road to the orphanage has been washed out during the monsoon, and needs fixing to ensure a clear and safe route. This request is much sooner than I anticipated, but these things cannot be predicted. With only a week to go I could not assure them that I would be able to fully fund this, but as I have found through setting up this project, there is no harm done in asking, and you have to ask in order to receive. So if you havent alreaddly got my hint, here is it, if any one would like to or knows someone in a position to sponsor the fixing of the road - let me know.

 We need five truck loads of laterite to mend the road: one truck load cost US $ 130 x 5 = US $ 650.
