After a half an hour ride in a tuk tuk on one of the bumpiest roads (yep, organization I am volunteering for – Cambodian Child’s Dream Organization (CCDO) – still doesn’t own a car – which shows how carefull and thoughtful they are when it comes to spending their hard raised donations), we finally arrive at one of the schools, where CCDO runs its various programmes. Around 100 kids are waiting for us, lined up in two lines on both sides of the school entrance, greeting and waving at us with huge smiles on their faces. It is a magical moment, filled with appreciation, happiness and gratitude. I haven’t contributed a single thing to them until that day and still my eyes filled up with tears, so I can’t imagine how emotional this must have been for a founder of CCDO, Mrs. Lipa, who founded this organization some 8 years ago and my cousing Ksenija, that spent the last 5 years helping Mrs. Lipa run the organisation.
And what were my activities in the past two weeks of volunteering? I will share that with you in the next post 🙂
