Subsequent to the previous blog, Loic and I along with the help of my American friend who is on exchange in Singapore, Stefan decided to start a fund-raising project to help build the new orphanage in Cambodia.. We have created a project on and hope to raise the money in 3 months.. Below is the complete breakdown of the funds required!

No Desription Quantity Unit Price Total
1 Brick 6000 300R 1800000R=$450
2 Sand 20m³ $20 $400
3 Cement 6T $85 $510

8 Wire 50kg $1 $50
9 Nail 0,05m 1 bag $10 $10
10 Nail 0,10m 1bag $15 $15
11 Zebraro roof 56m² $15 $840
12 Door 2 $70 $140
13 Window 2 $45 $90

19 Brush 4 $1 $4
20 Hirer/Workers $1,000

In addition to the above, we are also hoping to raise an additional US$4900 to purchase the land to build the rooms in. A small piece of land has already been purchased but additional funds are required to purchase a land 182 m2. The land costs $5500 but we have already paid the deposit of 600$, hence the 4900$ required. This in total, our fund raising goal is US$9581

Thanks so much for checking this out and I really hope you can take some time off your day to make a change in the lives of these children.
