Container Part One: Unpacking and Clothes

11 Aug

We have been extremely lucky recently to receive a huge amount of supplies for our center from A Heart For Cambodia. This group filled an entire container full of desks, computers and clothes and arranged for it to be shipped over to Cambodia. With importing goods normally being a struggle we did not have the highest hopes that the container would be released from the port particularly quickly, but luckily after only a few days (and with the very hard work of Runny, an AHFC contact here in Sihanoukville) the supplies were free.

The first step was to unload it all and sort through it. Luckily we had lots of help. AHFC, myself and Runny had earmarked different charities in the area which we though could benefit from the supplies and we went about dividing everything up. There was so much stuff we had to take it in a few loads up to the center. We went with the tables and clothes first.

Sokheang was very pleased with his new class room.

We used the new desks to replace our old ones (which have been passed onto another charity). The main bonus is that we can easily stack these, giving us so much more space so we are not on top of each other all the time! It will make our lives a million times easier and nicer.

We can stack the tables easily to make more space for everyone too.

Clothes were distributed (along with school bags) to each of our students (along with a few items for adults in their families). It was like Christmas and great to see all the smiling faces with their shiny new clothes. They were all very grateful for their new things. A huge thank you to everyone who donated both their possessions and their time!
