We are sensitive to the fact that in these times money is tight, but even a small amount will go a long way in making a difference to the lives hungry families with no income. The cost of a Family Care Pack that will feed a family of 4 for one month is approx. au$40 (us$25). Initially we wanted to raise funds to feed the GFTV artisans and their families. However, it soon became apparent that many families, not just families with disabilities have fallen into poverty and are in need of food support so we decided to expand our scope to include other most vulnerable households. We are now endeavouring to raise funds to feed over 100 families until they can get back to earning a sustainable income. If many people from across the entire world can donate as little as us$10 (au$15) this will make a big difference in helping to feed hungry families in Siem Reap.

How donations are processed - UK campaign
100% of your donation will go directly to the SRFB to provide families with food support in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The UK GoFundMe (GFM) site was created by Brian Taylor, a SRFB volunteer living in London England (because GoFundMe does not operate in Cambodia). Brian Taylor and Chris Leonard have pledged to donate the cost of all the GoFundMe and bank transfer fees for donations to this campaign.
Funds raised through this campaign site are automatically transferred into an English Bank account and then transferred into the Siem Reap Food Banks ABA bank account in Cambodia. To ensure that the Food Bank has a continuous cash flow to purchase food & other essential items throughout the coming months’, monies will be transferred to SRFB’s account on a regular basis as funds become available.
Compared to other crowdfunding sites the GFM transaction charges are quite low.
We will post a regular updates about our fundraising & distribution activities on our Facebook page and financial reports for our fundraising initiatives below.
