2018: Lending a helping hand to many small projects.

In 2018 we received many donations from many different areas. These came not only in dollars, but also in the form of practical goods. We are always very happy that many of our guests donate to our worthy causes, so we can continue to help the people who need it the most.

There are many good projects in Cambodia, and the goal of the Lily Foundation is to help them flourish and maintain their motivation to continue. We don’t donate only to projects, but also directly to people who are particularly in need.

Please find below a list of projects we have supported over the last year:

CWEOK (Cambodian Woman Education Organization of Kampot)

CWEOK is a small NGO in Kep/Kampot which runs a local school for rural children. Every afternoon approximately 50 children get extra education for free from the dedicated teachers. Twice a month all students are also provided with a special lunch. Besides running the school, CWEOK also educates and helps woman in the local community in areas such as human rights information and domestic violence prevention and assistance.

The Kids on the bridge:

Kevin Sysyn, a famous musician in Siem Reap, started The Kids on the Bridge after being surrounded by street kids busking on one of the footbridges in Siem Reap. He took the money he made and paid for the kids to have a good dinner at one of the nearby street stalls. Since then he has developed his project into a daily dinner for local street kids. All the money he makes performing around town, along with all donations from tourists, expats and local businesses and foundations go to help fed the street children street children. The Lilly Foundation has provided a $100 to this worthy cause.
