About The Cambodian Children’s Charity
The Cambodian Children’s Charity (‘CamKids’) is a development and relief organisation, dedicated to providing direct aid to poor children in Cambodia. Our principle objective is to help children in Cambodia who are either poor or whose parents are not there for them: orphans, street children, children living in poor rural areas and children affected by natural disasters, such as flood or famine. In a country where there is a high rate of child abandonment, we also support programs to help strengthen vulnerable families and keep them together. For more information, visit our website:, our News Weblog: or e-mail: Charity Registration Number: 1116862

South Downs Sponsored Event

Over the weekend of 24 and 25 March, four of the Charity's supporters cycled and ran the length of the South Downs, from Winchester to Eastbourne in cold and miserable weather. The total amount raised and pledged is currently over £6,500, including Gift Aid. Our thanks go out to Ned, Craig, Seamus and John and all of the people who sponsored them. If you would like to organise a similar event, send an e-mail to or go to to set up your own JustGiving site.
