Another wonderful Aussie lady, Libby McCann was one of the founders of this orphanage, located a few km down the road from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. As a tourist to the wonders of Angkor Wat and the surrounds, Libby became aware of the huge number of orphaned and abandoned kids in the area – as a result of war, land mines, AIDs and general social dislocation.  She determined to do something about it and bought some land, came back to Australia and set about raising money.
 
Kampuchea House consists of four accommodation units for about eight children each plus a house mother. There is also a small administration block, a toilet/bathroom block, a cooking and dining block.
 
The children range from two years old to 18 years old. They all attend the local village school. The atmosphere is happy, clean, safe. The children have gone from lost causes to kids with a future.
 
It is a tonic to visit Kampuchea House and we cannot help but support them for their great cause, coupled with competent, transparent local management and Australian oversight.  Regrettably our ability to support can not extend beyond donations but members are encouraged to visit if they find themselves in Siem Reap.

Libby addressed our club in 2012 and 2013 and has won many converts.
