We hereby would like to make a plea to all our friends to help us keep CDO going. CDO is about to lose the land it currently occupies and is in urgent need to raise funds to buy a land.
Being the second time this type of situation occurs over the past two years and due to the disrespect of the contract by the land owner, we seek to buy a land to CDO rebuild itself one final time with sound structures and solid foundations not fearing an unpredictable eviction.
After much search in Siem Reap to find a suitable land near schooling facilities, close to main road accesses and meeting all government requirements, we were able to find a land that, despite having an poor-maintained access dirt road that may pose challenges for smaller children, it is big enough to shelter all children with good living conditions at a cost of 92,000 USD. In order to keep the institution accessible to all children we would further need 8,000 USD to pave the dirt road. All information on the land and money transfer can be found on the following pdf file “New Land for CDO“.
