Improving Cambodian Lives
Year 9 student Morgan McCann and Year 7 student Milla Gosney shared with us their recent travel experience to Cambodia during the last school holidays, where they volunteered and improved the living conditions of 10 Cambodian families.
Morgan and Milla said that for the past 2 years we have been busy fundraising to reach our goal of $20,000 which enabled us to build 10 homes through the Tabitha Foundation in Cambodia.
"After learning more about the history of this country and knowing how much they have suffered, it was incredibly rewarding to be a part of such an experience," said Milla.
"We have learned some amazing things whilst being on this trip of a lifetime. We have learnt how grateful we should be for the things we have, no matter how small they are. It was one of the most incredible and heart touching things seeing the children get so excited for the things we simply take for granted everyday," said Morgan.
Well done Morgan and Milla, what a fantastic learning experience for you both and all involved. A wonderful example of selflessness, compassion and the power of giving back to those in need.
