Cambodia House Building 2024

Congratulations to Kailey, Shauna and Evalyn who have been selected to represent the Kulin Community on a life changing 7-day trip to Cambodia in July 2024 to help build homes for some of the world’s poorest families.

 

All three girls did a brilliant job explaining to the panel why they should be chosen to go on this year’s trip to Cambodia and given we are in a position this year to send three applicants, all three are going! The students will be travelling with Mrs Megan Syred, Mrs Alecia Robertson and Gen Whisson from Consult Ag Kulin to work with The Helping Foundation Australia.

Eight out of ten Cambodians live in rural Cambodia, in fragile structures that offer little protection from the elements. Having a sturdy house not only provides shelter and security, but parents are also healthier, possessions are not lost to floods, and children in weatherproof housing are ten times more likely to attend school and are on a path to better employment and a better life.

The initiative is being coordinated by Ben and Gen Whisson from Consult Ag Kulin (Cropportunity Pty Ltd) with support from the Kulin community and beyond. It aims to provide Kulin DHS students with an experience of a lifetime, building leadership and an appreciation of the incredible life we have in Australia.

The 2024 Trip

This year’s trip will take place 20th July – 27th July 2024 and will be based out of Siem Reap - home of the famous Ankor Wat Temples. It will involve supporting multiple projects including building houses, handing over cows to poor families at Cows for Cambodia, giving school uniforms to orphans, establishing an English learning project and helping babies and toddlers who have been abandoned.

How You Can Help

Over the coming weeks, The Kulin Group will be raising funds to help cover the cost of the houses and other projects they will support whilst in Cambodia. All money raised and donated will go directly to the projects and contribute to a better life for Cambodian families. Please see the attached “how to donate” poster.

For more information, please contact Gen Whisson on 0427 651 304 or gen@consultag.com.au And a VERY BIG thank you to those people who have already donated and supported this initiative.
