**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 14** New Shoes Day :) Many of our our poor students don't own any shoes or if they do they tend to be cheap and flimsy, breaking easily in the harsh conditions they live in. As I mentioned before, many of the kids live in slums built on top of rubbish dumps so having these shoes helps avoid cuts and infection. Today I had the pleasure of buying 50 pairs of 'sliders' as they call they them. Flip flops to you and me! The kids were overjoyed to get them and a lot of them took them off and put them back in the plastic to keep them clean!!

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 11** "If you are fit in body you are fit in mind" (my Dad) The YES programme. One of the other programs in Feeding Dreams that we support is the YES Football programme. When I visited today I was delighted to see the children and young people wearing clothing and football boots that we had supplied through our fundraising. The football program runs over 3 days where each day they do a 3 hour session and then on Sunday's there is one session in the morning and one in the afternoon. Around 200 children ranging from 5-21 years of age take part in - and to say they take it seriously is an understatement! I feel this program is absolutely essential, as well as the physical training (there is no PE in the schools here) they also take morality and hygiene classes. The coaches are from the Siem Reap football team and is ran by our boss's son, Blaed. It gives the kids a break from their extremely tough lives and as my dad has always instilled in me "If you are fit in body you are fit in mind".

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 10** Essential supplies! Today I wanted to let you know that we have used some of our funds to aid with the support and servicing of the water filtration system in the school. This is essential to ensure we have enough clean and safe drinking water for our 800 children and staff every day Every few months it costs a lot for a complete overhaul, and thanks to you we are able to do this! many of the children only get clean water to drink when they come to school.

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 9** Good Afternoon ladies! Today I used some of the money we have raised over the last year to fill the first aid cabinets in the school. I bought a large selection of items including plasters, paracetamol and fungal creams. Fungal infections are extremely common - usually among the poorest children - it is highly contagious and spreads like wildfire with the conditions they live in. The first aid room is of vital importance to the school. Most of the families could never afford things like paracetamol if they have a fever and we have to clean and cover many cuts. A lot of the children live in slums that are on or beside rubbish dumps. This is their playground and as you can imagine is extremely unsafe and they often cut their feet walking and playing in the rubbish. Most slums have limited water supplies to keep the cut clean, don't have money buy bandages or creams and many people don't even know what to do to treat such minor injuries.

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 8** Today I visited the local second hand market and bought clothes for our 'boutique'. Our 'boutique' is essentially a storage room where we store clothing for children/families who need them most. This year in particular I noticed that many of the kids were in desperate need of clothing - especially the boys. As you can see in the pictures for ONLY $50 (just Β£36) we were able to buy a HUGE bundle of clothing in the age bracket that we required. Its a mixture of boys and girls clothing but you don't know what you get until you open it. This will make such a difference to many of the kids - and they appreciate the smallest item so much!

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 7** After enjoying a relaxing weekend with friends today we were looking after one of our students from the Dreams Training Centre - Sat Try. 28 year old Sat Try was involved in an accident on the way to her hometown on the massive national highway and had to postpone her internship due to a broken shoulder. Sat Try has a bleak history - as a child she grew up chronically malnourished and endured endless bombs going off in her village. When she was only young, her 17 year old brother was shot and killed by the Khmer rouge, from a sniper in a nearby field. She has spent her whole life working in a Casino on the border, catering to drunk clients and working under unfair conditions. She eventually was persuaded to join her other brother working as a pig farmer in Thailand, where she fell extremely ill. She eventually found out about the Dreams Training Centre and was fast to apply, relocate and has been extremely dedicated to her course. We were able to pay Sat Try's medical expenses to repair her painful broken shoulder. Otherwise she would have been left suffering as her family simply could not afford the necessary treatment. Looking forward to seeing Sat Try back on the programme soon!

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 4** Hey ladies! Today I wanted to update you on our Feeding Dreams Training Centre and Vocational Hospitality Programme. In addition to helping the school children, we also provide 60 young people with 12 months of intensive training at our custom-built facility. We prepare each student for a career in the rapidly expanding hospitality industry in Siem Reap. Each student focuses on one of the following 4 departments: House-keeping, Front-office, Cooking or Food and Beverage Services. They earn highly demanded technical skills along with vital life skills including financial literacy, negotiation and leadership skills. Previously these students will have had minimal or no education. After six months at our Training Centre, the students will then undergo a four month internship with local 4-5 star hotels. The final 2 months of the course include analysis and support from the centre, and graduation and job placement. When I was here last January the centre had only been launched, this time I booked in for lunch and met some of the students and heard their stories. We were served an unbelievable lunch then a student sang for us!!! It was all fantastic and I love to see us helping the young people in the area as well as the children!

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 3** Good morning ladies - sorry I have been struggling with wi-fi over the weekend so just updating you all now! I thought it was important to remind you all of our main expenditure here at Feeding Dreams Cambodia with an update on our FEEDING PROGRAMME. This is where the majority of money that we raised is spent. Malnutrition remains a significant problem in Cambodia and causes approx 1/3 of all child deaths. In the past 5 years, the number of children suffering from chronic malnutrition has decreased only slightly and the number suffering from acute malnutrition may have increased. Major causes of poor nutrition in young children are inadequate complementary feeding practices, poor hygiene and high prevalence of diseases, including diarrhea. Almost 40 percent of children are chronically malnourished. Malnutrition affects most Cambodian children. HOW WE ADDRESS IT Through Feeding Dreams Cambodia's School Meal Program we are able to provide free school meals - 600 nutritious meals per day to malnourished children. The School Meal Program varies daily, thick rice soup with vegetables, herbs and chicken/beef, fried rice with chicken/seafood and vegetables, soup with vegetables, chicken and herbs, baguettes, heavy pumpkin or bean pudding with coconut milk etc...

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 2** β€œNothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike.” β€” John F Kennedy Hi ladies! So today we went bicycle shopping - with the aim to make a number of kids lives a little easier! From our funds we bought a number of bicycles for some of the children who have the furthest to travel to get to school. They walk miles and miles each day to get to Feeding Dreams and this will make such a difference to their daily routine! We also bought one for one of the mothers - who will use it to collect rubbish more easily (they attach bags to each side so they can collect and carry) and she can also travel to different areas trying to sell her rags! This is her lifeline and how she makes what little money she has.

**CLARE IN CAMBODIA BLOG - DAY 1** Hi ladies, once again with all the support of my lovely clients, friends and family I am back in Cambodia helping with the kids of Feeding Dreams. I will attempt to post here as often as I can to fill you in on what I am doing and how all the money we raised throughout the year is being spent! Today we meet Seyha. Seyha fell over during a youth accademy friendly match and landed awkwardly on his hand during the second half. It was clear that the arm was broken but despite the pain he walked off the field holding his arm without a single tear. Two of our coaches rushed him directly to Neak Tep clinic whilst another got in contact with his family and organised to meet them at the clinic. Once he arrived at the clinic, the Xray showed a clean break of both bones on his right arm. He was sedated whilst the doctor put his arm in a plaster cast and sling. During the many hours in the clinic he still did not cry and would have to be one of the bravest young boys I've seen! His arm will be in the cast for 5 weeks and recovery time will take around 6 months. As well as paying for Seyha's treatment (as the family simply could not afford this), we gave his family some money for food and drinks as they left the clinic that evening. x
