What does Habitat do with the fundraising money?
This year the money raised by the Damloop team will go to a project in Cambodia. Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. After more than 25 years of civil war and oppression by the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia has been able to seriously reduce poverty in the country. However, many people living in rural areas still lack basic rights and necessities.
Habitat Cambodia is committed to improving the lives of those living in rural areas. Besides building and improving homes, Habitat also focuses on improving water- and sanitation facilities for the poorest and most vulnerable families. For these families a new, decent house means a new start. Furthermore, no longer having to worry about living conditions means that families can now fully focus on creating a new future for themselves.
With your fundraising money you will help build a new future for the families in Cambodia!
