Ramadan Appeal July 2014
Ramadan Food Pack and Iftar Distribution
Cambodia July 2014
On July the 14th, ARO volunteers Yildiray Odemis and Mehmet Canli travelled to Cambodia’s capital city Phnom Penh. They were hosted by Mekong Charity; ARO’s partner organisation in the country.
On July the 15th and the 16th, Odemis and Canli attended a number functions organised by Mekong Charity and delivered iftars and food packs to the poor and the needy around Songkat Srah Chork and Songkat Chroy Chongva regions.
Due to the civil war, approximately 30 thousand people are living in barracks within the city stadium of Zamboanga at present.
Volunteers distributed the food aid packs close to this area at the poor suburbs. Containing rice, oil, soy sauce, noodles, etc., food packs relieved difficulties of the needy to some extent.
While delivering food packs in narrow streets and 15-20 sqm houses with limited electricity and water, volunteers witnessed the prayers of the needy to the donators.
Later, the delegation travelled to the rural town of Taluksangay, and distributed iftars to approximately 800 locals.
