Topic  – Cambodian Rice Run

Cambodian Rice Run started in 2017, when Marita and Todd (Founders) decided to branch out from donating to various charities to actually getting on the ground and trying to make a difference while holidaying in their favourite country. Marita was introduced to Tammy Durand of ABCs & Rice, a small charity school in Siem Reap and asked her to help her co-ordinate her dream on the ground.

With a goal of trying to get 100 bags of rice to deliver to at-risk families, the first year the crew smashed this goal raising enough money to buy 194 bags. By the second year, and with a goal of 200 bags, the goal again was smashed with 433 bags delivered. In 2020, just two months out from heading back to deliver more rice, COVID-19 hit and changed everyone’s lives. 2020 seen many challenges, but thanks to Tammy and the Cambodian Rice Run Team we have continued to deliver rice and food packages to families in Cambodia.
