FAQ

How are funds made available to the projects we support?

Based on our fundraising forecast, monthly allocations are agreed with each project. Funds are then transferred directly from our Australian account to the Cambodian Bank accounts for each project.


Where are the school uniforms and rice purchased?

We purchase the rice from a local mill in Siem Reap.

The school uniforms are made at the LHA sewing centre (which we helped to set up in 2006). This not only provides village children with their uniforms enabling them to attend school but provides training and income for the students at the sewing centre.


How long does a tonne of rice last?

A tonne of rice will feed 80 children for 20 days
