Thank you to all those who participated in our special evening event on the 11th January. Our students and teachers performed the classical Blessing dance, “Robam Chuon Puor”, Mohori and Yike music and Traditional Shadow Puppet Theatre. The film director and producer John Pirozzi then showed his extraordinarily moving film, “Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten” about Cambodian artists in the 1960’s and 70’s and what happened to them during the Khmer Rouge genocide. We raised $190 for our school and proceeds will go towards providing food, clothing, electricity and medical care for our resident children who are blind or orphaned, some with HIV or epilepsy.
As founder I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Jem Pumford, to John Pirozzi, to my very dear staff and children at our school, to Angkor Brewery for their supply of soft drinks and water, then to Ian Wiggins and Rob O’Hara for their film about our school and to all the people who came and supported us and helped us.
