After a long hard but extremely rewarding week we finally made it to the weekend. Today some of our volunteers went on an amazing adventure to Kulan Mountain. It is about and hour and a half drive and then a hike through the jungle but it’s all worth it in the end. Our volunteers got to see a beautiful waterfall and swim in its pristine water. It was a fantastic day and everyone had a blast.
For those who stayed in Siem Reap they had the day to explore, shop, get massages and hang by the pool. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to two, Nat the amazing and Demi the incredible but I am sure we will see them again.
Tonight we headed to an acrobatic circus which was absolutely AMAZING. The story telling, acrobatic tricks, lights and music was simply a 10 out of 10. Many volunteers described it as the best thing they have ever seen and I would agree, it was truly phenomenal and one of the best parts is that it is a school that takes kids off the street to give them an education and a job. If you ever find yourself in this wonderful city do yourself a favour and check out Phare Circus.
Tomorrow most of us are heading to the elephant sanctuary. If your loved one is staying in Siem Reap, continue reading this blog.

I can say for all of us that we have fallen in love with Cambodia and the people here.
The help doesn’t stop here though! The Reach Out Volunteers Charity funds the ROV Community School in Siem Reap year round, allowing the children to receive a free education, materials and supplying an income for all of the teachers.
The ROV Charity relies solely on donations and a small gesture can go a long way. A donation of $50 can support the construction of a smoke ventilated kitchen, providing a family with the infrastructure to reduce the risks of lung cancer, pneumonia and asthma.
$100 can provide over 100 children food from our soup kitchens for one month in South Africa.
$1000 can help run the ROV Community school for one month, allowing children to receive an education and the opportunity to get out of poverty.
Rest assured 100% of donations go directly into on-ground projects overseen by the ROV Charity.
As always Jol Moi
