BENEFITING: CROSSING CAMBODIA
At Crossing Cambodia, we provide our kids, not just meals and mentoring, but the opportunity to receive an education. With many of our kids on the cusp of attending secondary school, our role has become more vital than ever. Unfortunately, many of them have no way to make the trek to school each day and would stop attending without the rides we provide.
Which brings us to why we are starting this campaign; it’s time to replace the truck. Not only has our truck been breaking down more and more frequently, but the steering wheel is on the right hand side of the vehicle, which is abnormal for most vehicles here in Cambodia. Just recently, there was news of a vehicle with the same steering arrangement getting into a horrible accident that resulted in the death of nine people. The report reasoned that it was likely that the driver had a difficult time seeing oncoming traffic when overtaking due to the steering arrangement. As you can imagine, this has made us incredibly worried for our staff and our kids. Please consider helping us keep these kids safe while they get the education they need!
