Let's sponsor Bopha Sok's daughter, Lyheng, to attend the Australian Centre for Education (ACE) Siem Reap Campus.

Auckland

Bopha and his family remain truly grateful for the generosity shown by his global network of friends in 2020 when, together, we helped him out of a very tight spot: https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/save-bophas-home. Some of us wanted to see how we can help them in 2022.

Update since our 2020 fundraising:

Close to losing their home, he had tried to find other ways to earn an income, including construction, which proved very dangerous and too greater risk to his wellbeing and life. As a direct result of our collective effort, Bopha has been able to keep the family home. They have, however, rented it out for the time being and are living in a village with extended family.

Tourists can now travel to Cambodia and Bopha is seeing some increase in visitor numbers to Siem Reap although it is hard to know how long it will take for it to return to what it was. G Adventures have one guide working again but Bopha was one of several who were made redundant and don't know whether the company will need them again. He wants to buy his own tuk-tuk and operate as an independent guide for visits to Angkor Wat.

How can we help in 2022?

We offered to help fundraise for a tuk-tuk but what would provide Bopha the greatest comfort would be to know that, regardless of how long it takes for him to generate more income, his eldest daughter, Lyheng, will be able to attend the Australian Centre for Education (ACE) Siem Reap Campus to recommence her English language studies (https://acecambodia.org/).

Clifton Magon's involvement (page creator)

I met Bopha Sok in 2013 when he was a guide for a tour I had of Cambodia and Vietnam. His personality and big heart enabled our group, like many others, to share a wonderful travel experience and many of us have stayed in touch with Bopha ever since.

There is still time to make a donation.  23 May 2022

We are so excited to report that we raised enough for Bopha's eldest daughter, Lyheng, to attend ACE. Some of Bopha's other friends intend to donate soon so we have increased the target by $1k to enable any final donations before the campaign's end date. Any additional funds raised will go toward school fees for Lyheng's brother or younger sister.
