Main aim of the charity
Aim is to provide a meal (lunch) for a child in the school. The free meal will motivate the child to come to school and get education. They have to travel long distance from home and without the lunch as the motivation for them, many times the children will stop coming to school.
How the employee got involved and why
My husband retired from work in 2016. He started a charity cause in Cambodia called Lunch For Kids - Help feed a Child in Cambodia. The aim is to provide a meal ie a lunch a day for 1 year for a child in a school. Children often go hungry and by providing meal in school free of charge for them, this encourage them to come to school Monday to Friday. Donors sponsor a child for 1 year by donating SGD200. In 2017, there are 153 donors giving lunches to 153 children for a year to stay in school. More details can be found in Facebook page : Lunch For Kids
What work does the employee do for charity?
I supported my husband in his work by sponsoring a child in his first year. In 2017, my daughter won a school scholarship worth SGD1,000. We thus decided to use this scholarship to sponsor 5 children under Lunch For Kids. In this year 2018, my daughter will be following my husband on this yearly trip.
