Don is a recent traveler to Cambodia and it was his last trip or movement of the life after getting some bad health news 18 months ago to his cancer.

In February 2014, Don was introduced to Samnang by his tour guide, Sreykhuoch Sok who is good friend to Mr. Samnang Chhon, the founder of Angkor Kids Center, and they made a visit to the project. Don was impressed by the work done solely there and he kept strolling around the village in a high humidity with sweat all over the body.

Upon his return to Australia, Don gave us a good news that his health was getting back to much much better. He believed that the Travel in Asia, particularly in Cambodia including the visit to AKC are what helped him back to good health.

Beyond the gratefulness in words, with the inspiration from Angkor Kids Center work, plus the touching living condition of Cambodian people, Don had a great passion to repay in part the beautiful but extremely poor people here and help kids to become educated so they can get jobs and help their families.

Don spent a few more visit to Cambodia and meet with several people to discuss possibilities to deliver the help safely and sustainably. With his rich travel experience, and with the potential connection that he has through his over 25 years operating Travel business, a Continental Crossing Motorbike Ride for Charity has been delivered to live by Mr Don Rosenfeldt from Sydney to Darwin up to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and down to Siem Reap, Angkor, and Angkor Kids Center.

His ride is to raise fund for three charities :

1/- Angkor Kids Center, raising money to help duplicate this scheme in other needy areas.

2/- CHOICE Cambodia, a great charity run by expats living in Phnom Penh, Ross to have additional funds will be a huge assistance.

3/ – Prostate Cancer Research,  January 6, 2014,  is the date Don was told his prostate cancer was so aggressive and advanced he would be lucky to see the following Christmas. Well, that was a wrong prognosis as his PSA has gone from a very scary high of 270 to a low now of 0.14!!! He hope he is able to again help here by donation for more research.

The main sponsor of the ride is AEA Luxury,  the inbound tour operator http://www.aealuxury.com.au/ and donation will be accepted under the umbrella of Rotary Club of Dee Why Warringah Donation page.

A while ago, I received an e-mail from Mr. Richard Vaughan which seemed to be unknown source addressing me, stating that one of their committee had visited AKC recently in 2014, asking for some information of Angkor Kids Center, if we are in need of anything as they were going to do some fundraising through their generous and passionate customers in Australia. I did make the replies listing a few needs as requested, but it was doubtful for me to whom I wrote to and when our meeting was. The communication went back and forth for a while and we got to be quiet.

As of early June 2015, I got the mail correspondence being forwarded by a different person stated that she would like to visit AKC as the delegate of Aston Ryan & Malcolm. The 18th June 2015 was our appointment date and we meet like planned. With a friendly Khmer look in skin and name born Australian lady Ms. Leang SAO and her friend, I took them to visit AKC, along the way we had some chat and saw some pictures of the last visitor, then I realized that we used to welcome Mr. Michael Ryan to have a quick look at AKC before his flight home. Read more about his story of the visit and the inspiration he got by then on their blog http://astonryan.com.au/angkor-kids-centre/.

After welcoming our guests through our backdoor;) Leang has been presented of the school and its founding stories as usual. Just before our return back to Siem Reap, Leang cited the work that her company, ARM does to support the social projects like AKC, and to leave good memories here in Cambodia, ARM left one thousand three hundred Australian dollars which is around one thousand US. dollars to support AKC. This great sum of cash donation is being used to sustain and maintain the new Branch of the Green Project (Piggery Project) with the main part funded by Ivanhoe Grammar School in Australia.

As the founder of AKC and on behalf of AKC team and beneficiary group, I would like to present a great grateful token to Mr. Michael Ryan, Ms. Leang Sao, Mr. Richard Vaughan and all the staff at Aston Ryan & Malcolm offering the accountants, auditors, and financial planners services based in Dingley VIC 3172, Australia, that we count as a business who has the Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) in their business practice.

Follow us on Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AngkorKC or come back here on our news released to see the result of the donation used in the next two months.

Sending you the best wishes and regards,

Samnang,
