A special message for you!

The children in Sopheak’s community, Koh Andaet, have filmed this special moment to share with you, their sponsor. It’s a short video of life in the Koh Andaet community, a moment chosen by the children. Happy viewing!

In January this 2014 an eclectic group of people from our church and community travelled to Cambodia. This trip was aimed at raising our awareness of the culture and the way of living of the people of Cambodia, with a view to developing an overseas mission project for our church and community centre.
We started our 11 day journey in Phnom Penh, where we visited the World Vision Headquarters. The staff gave 2 presentations illustrating the way in which World Vision operates in Cambodia. A lot of discussion followed and we were able to gain a huge insight into the passion with which the members of World Vision work to make life better for the people of Cambodia.
A World Vision representative accompanied us to their Child Safety Project in the city, where we spent time meeting with the staff. What these people are doing to rehabilitate the abused and neglected children of Phnom Penh is simply amazing.
Our next visit was to a World Vision Area Development Project in the province of Takeo, in the south of Cambodia. We visited the communities of Koh Andaet where World Vision has a co-ordinating centre, staffed by a wonderful team of local people. Their work involves the management of the projects in the area.
We were awestruck at the commitment of the local people to improve their living conditions. Using funds donated by New Zealanders, Australians and Japanese, World Vision works alongside the people of these communities, educating them and assisting them in such programmes as:
A Water Purification Plant – Small business project
Distribution of fresh water – Small business project
Hand health in schools
Fresh water in schools
Rubbish management in schools
Large irrigation projects
Roading
Health centres
Communal purchase projects
Youth Projects
Church planting
St Heliers Church and Community Centre has committed to support the Koh Andeath World Vision Area Development Programme (ADP).
We will do this by sponsoring children in the Koh Andaet communities and by organizing fundraising events. The proceeds will go directly to the Koh Andaet ADP. Watch for these events advertised on our website and on our Face Book pageIf you would like to become part of our Outreach Mission for Cambodia, we invite you to sponsor a child in this area.
