“2018 Acts of Random Kindness and the Gifts of Love”

To help the poor elderly and handicap families in Battambang, Cambodia

Before Khmer New Year, April 2018

Our team in Battambang distributed food donation packages before Khmer New Year, April 13, 2018. Total 115 families received these food donation packages.
Food Package: 20 kgs of rice, 1 bag of salt, 1 Sarong, 1 scarf (Kroma), 2 soap bars, 1 small bag of laundry detergent, 1 kg of sugar, and 1/2 box of noodles, 1 bottle of soy sauce, 1 bottle of fish sauce, 1 canned juice, and 2.5 USD.

“I, Sophie Lau-Lopez, would like to say “BIG THANK YOU” to my families near or far (Maryland, Sydney Australia, and Avignon, France), friends, my supervisors, co-workers, and my Sunday School classmates for your good hearts, kindness, and generosity in support of my “Acts of Random Kindness & the Gifts of Love” project toward the needy elderly and handicap families in Battambang. This is year #4 that I organized this project.  This was only possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you.  You helped bringing hope and healing to these people who were struggling to survive. Nothing made us happier than to see these needy people’s smiling faces and in their purest moments of joy when they received these food packages.  I wanted to say thank you to all of you from the bottom of my heart. Because of you, we could help 115 elderly poor people in 8 communes (1. Watkor = 20, 2. Samrong Knong = 21, 3. Prek Luong = 17, 4. Prek Norin = 27, 5. Prek Khpob = 22, 6. Chamka Samrong = 5, 7. Slaket = 2, 8. Kdol = 1)  in Battambang, Cambodia.  IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE.  Let this New Year be the one, where all your dreams & wishes come true, so with a joyful heart, put a start to this year anew. Wishing you all a happy and prosperous New Year 2018! May God bless us all!  Matthew 25:35: For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.

Thank you note to all DONORS from the needy elderly/handicap families in Battambang, Cambodia:

We are the needy senior citizens and handicap families in Battambang, we would like to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness, generosity, and love toward all of us in our villages. We cannot begin to express what the food packages mean to our poor families here, especially during this Cambodian/Khmer New Year. We never feel love and hope like this before. When we received these gifts we felt the love and the spirit of compassion from all of you who are a thousand miles away.  You all brought the love of God to our villages. We appreciate these gifts very much!  Please continue to pray for us as well!  May God bless you all! 

Best regards,

The Needy Senior Citizens and handicap Families from Battambang Cambodia
