Dear friends and humanitarians,
When Feeding Dreams Cambodia opened the doors to hundreds of desperate, starving chil-
dren in November 2012 we never could have envisaged what the project would grow to be.
Feeding Dreams has made a very positive name for itself, both in Cambodia and globally. We
are the largest organization in our commune and have an excellent reputation with local gov-
ernment who use us as a model of best practice for smaller organizations. Our programs are
effective and we are always refining systems and monitoring impact. We have a great team of
responsible Khmers working alongside professional international staff.
Grass roots organisations work, having the ability to react quickly to emergent crisis situations
within the community without delay. We have partner organizations in UK, Ireland, Australia,
Canada, USA, Singapore, who endorse us and process our donations with tax deductibil-
ity. They are responsible for thorough reporting to their relevant governments in order
to maintain their tax free status, which shows we have a wonderful, professional network
around the world.
As with most grassroots charities, we are always playing ‘catch up’ because the jobs at hand
seem never ending. Another crisis situation will always be around the corner. There are no
other organizations in Siem Reap that tackle such a large scope of issues including, holistic
education, sports program, leadership skills, building of family huts, medical and dental treat-
ment for our children, family planning and birth control for our mums, small businesses, coun-
seling, Public School and University sponsorship and support for their families, funerals, and
now in the near future Vocational training.
But the most pressing issue is funds our running costs for 2016 are $162,000 ($13,500 per
month). We rely 100% on donations from our supporters. We simply cannot continue Feeding
Dreams without financial donations. We are hopeful that humanitarians will once again, do-
nate to us so that we can continue the fight against poverty and suffering throughout 2016.
Lots of love and best wishes,
Kerry Huntly,

Child laborer returns to School after
donation of custom made Shell Cart
Kerry saw this boy many times pushing his shells up and down the road at school and when she tried to speak to him he
kept his head down. If she asked if he would like to come to school he said no. Recently Kerry went out and asked him
again and he says “yes!” One of our volunteers went out and bought all his shells and Michelle and I took him to his
home on a tuk tuk to do a profile on the family.
Unfortunately the mum wasn't home but we managed to gather some information from his granny and agreed with
them to return the following day to speak to the mum. There is 4 children in the family, a 15 year old boy, a 13 year old
(the boy that started the whole thing), a 10 year old girl and a 5 year old girl.
They are all very skinny, the eldest boy looks nothing like his age because of the chronic malnutrition. The family makes
their money by walking the streets all day selling shells, they rent their carts so profit is low and all are expected to work.
The older children were forced to leave school after only a few years to help. They have 3 carts- one for the mum and
youngest daughter goes with her, one for the 13 year old boy and one for the 10 year old girl. The father is an alcoholic
so does not work and provides no income so it all falls on the mum.
The mum initially said no to school as the kids need to work but when we offered to pay for carts, that Feeding Dreams
(1 kindly paid for by Michelle Allan and the other 2 by the clients of Clare McKinney make up & beauty) would own but
let them use rent free on the condition the kids came to school she agreed. So the 13 and 10 year old have to work in
the morning and come to feeding dreams in the afternoon from 2-4. Hopefully in time the 5 year old will come too.
This is another successful outcome from a chance encounter and through the generosity of your supports. Our social
workers will monitor the progress of the family and we look forward to updating you in the future.

Since 2012 Feeding Dreams Cambodia has been
committed to developing young leaders with an em-
phasis on life skills lessons, vocational training and
community engagement.
Sports engage people, foster teamwork, release en-
dorphins and teach young people important life les-
sons about hard work, dedication and relying on oth-
ers. In the urban slums of Tavien, sports help to keep
kids off the streets and away from drugs and vio-
lence.
On site we have a myriad of sporting activities so that
each child has a chance to discover their talents and
develop their natural abilities. We have a dedicated
sports coordinator who encourages the students in
football, basketball, volleyball and athletics.

Feeding Dreams Cambodia NEWS
Roun Ry has been the Feeding Dreams sports coordinator since July 2015 and already he has established the Feeding
Dreams Football Club (FDFC) as a main contender in the school soccer scene in Siem Reap. One of our students
interviewed Roun this week to find out more about our sports program.
How many kids are in the soccer training program?
Well, there are different age groups but I would say the
amount is around 4050 kids.
How many times a week do you train on our pitch?
We train every Monday, and Wednesday, and play
games on Friday. Training times are for 30 minutes, but
normally we train longer than 30 minutes because the
kids love it so much.
Are here any really talented superstars for the future?
Yes, of course. Some players are really good and I am
sure if they keep training hard one day they will become
a good soccer player, maybe even professional. We
can see that these last few years, the number of people
in Cambodia who love to do sport, especially football are
now increasing.
What do you love about being the sport co coordinator?
I'd love to share what I have to the children because I
have more experience and they are pretty new to the
football/soccer so I'd just like to share what I know. I'm
happy to be the soccer coach because soccer is one of
the most popular sports in Cambodia so I just encourage
them to do sport rather than using drug or gambling.
What does the weekly training do in terms of technical
skills? Well, I do different kind of drills for them like,
how to warm up, how to stretch, and passing drills, drib-
bling drills, shooting drills, defending drills etc. It is really
good to see how quickly they learn new moves.
Do you think the kids perform well as team players?
They are doing really well and getting better and better
because they always concentrate and do what I ask
them to do. And from the day we start training until now I
can see that they can play much better football game
and work as a team really well. They know how to pass
and controlling the ball pretty well so yeah they're doing
pretty great job.
What do you need to help your sports program?
What we need is support and we'd like to see more peo-
ple are cheering for the players when they are playing.
We want them to cheer every time those players about to
shoot at the goal so it will make the game even more
interesting and kids will be fun and happy to perform a
good game ;). One other thing is, we also need the soc-
cer gears. We have some at the moment but we always
need more gear.
Do you have any girls soccer teams?
The future of having girls team has come!! I thought not
many girls in Cambodia like playing football but it was
surprising me when I saw many young girls want to in-
volve in the sport program of Feeding Dream. The girls
were so happy that they could join and I was pleased to
train them too. I tell them there is something else beside
learning soccer like how to make the body fit and some
other exercises and how important it is to keep your body
healthy.
Thank you Ruon and good luck in the next game.

Support Teacher Sonung was
one of the University graduates
last Thursday.,
“I am so happy now that all the
hard work had paid off and
now I am the first to finish uni-
versity and my parents are so
proud of me.”
We would like to give a massive shout out to the group of ‘Friends of Trinity Lismore”, led by our
very own Garry Mulroy (Gus) who all worked incredibly hard while volunteering for 2 weeks. A new
home was built for the Horn family who lost everything when their hut burned down. They were
overwhelmed to see their new home, which was kindly ‘kitted out’ with everything a new home in
Cambodia could need. The team also renovated our donated clothing room and built custom
shelving and even a fitting room! With the clothing now in size order and organized, kitting out our
little ones will be much easier than rummaging through bags thanks so much ladies!
