Orphanage Refurbishment Dec 2014
By December 2014, our organisation has completed the second phase of a refurbishment project at an orphanage where 79 orphans reside in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Following the first stage of refurbishment (completed in October 2014), our organisation was informed about the needed air conditioning equipment by the orphanage. After conducting a feasibility study through our local partner Mekong Charity, we initiated a human appeal campaign for the orphanage in November 2014. After the required funds was raised, 24 ceiling fans to orphan bedrooms were installed with a ceremony.
A group of five ARO volunteers visited the complex on 29 Dec 2014 to oversee the installation. As the main driving force behind this humanitarian activity, Amity College Year 10 students; namely Daniel Demir, Mehmet Aldemir, Maksud Karaduman and Mohamed Deif travelled from Sydney to Phnom Penh with their maths teacher Irfan Yilmaz. As part of this project, each orphan was also given a shirt, a pair of trousers, a pair of underwear and a pair of shoes by the ARO delegation.
We thank our community and volunteers for their support to this meaningful humanitarian activity.
