These are the experiences of our volunteers in Cambodia.

July 16: A successful first week!

Posted in Cambodia on July 16, 2012

Things are going really well on our volunteer project. We are building a house for a local family who has recently lost their husband/father. There is the mom and her two young girls, one who is already attending school and the other who is still too young for school. They are such a nice family and everyday the grandparents (granddad is handicap) always bring us fruit, drinks and a big smile to show us their appreciation. The grandma speaks a little bit of English and always tries to speak with us, it is so lovely! The house we are building them has thatched walls and a zink roof.  Everyday the family, neighbors, some of our Host Partners volunteers and our DWC team come work on the house construction.  It has been a very joyful first work week.

This weekend we are going out to explore some of the surrounding areas of Kep: the caves, Kep national park, French arctic, hiking and going to the Kampot province, Borkor Mountain and the waterfalls near by. They are supposed to be really stunning!
