Thank you to all who represented the Wirreanda Community. The Wirreanda Cambodia Project team experienced the true gifts that come from giving whole heartedly , this group not only rose to the challenge – they surpassed anything I could have imagined .

Today we went to the floating village. It took about an hour to get there and we got into two groups and got in massive canoes. The canoe ride went down a river and went pass some houses on massive stilts, the village wasn’t really floating as there wasn’t much water in river. We stopped halfway at a restaurant that was floating on water.
When I think about the week I have spent in Cambodia, I feel very lucky and fortunate. Each day I get to spend time with beautiful Cambodian children. They are very happy and loving, I love them so much. Being here makes me so grateful and appreciative of the life I live in Australia.
Just a video created to show an overview of our first week in Cambodia.
So many memories already created and experienced .

Today my group went to the orphanage, it was a really cool experience and it was good to meet some kids. Myself and Hannah went into the younger kids classroom, we went through the alphabet a couple times and they sung us some songs. Afterwards we went and did the Macarena, it was so hot in the dance room. In the afternoon we went back to World Of Hope and did some construction, I actually really enjoyed moving a bunch of rocks around. The other group taught the children to brush their teeth , wash their hands and did craft and music activities .I also got to go to Gloria Jeans, twice, it’s my favourite coffee shop at home and it was nice to go there whilst we are here. -Brianna Dewar
Yesterday my group visited the orphanage so today our group went back to doing construction and teaching at the school. This morning, and this afternoon, I did construction. It was very tiring and I ruined my nails, but knowing that I was helping made me so happy that eventually I didn’t mind. Being here is such an incredible opportunity and every day is a brilliant experience, I almost don’t want to leave.
Today my group went to the orphanage and went into three groups English, dance and computing. In English they sing to them and the kids showed them how to count one to ten in Khmer. In dance they got showed how to do dances and the group showed them the Macarena and the nut bush. The computing group helped the students how to use Microsoft word and they showed us how to use Microsoft exl. At placement today , we donated all the goods Mr Attwell- Gill and his family donated to all the students , they loved their new outfits.
