Items needed for Container to Cambodia

In Spring 2008, CamKids will be constructing a large Nursery building at the main orphanage which CamKids supports (more important news on this project shortly). In addition, we are in the process of renovating a building to be used as a school for 120 children, who have never received any education (see Weblog Entry) in their lives, as well as a number of other projects.

As some of the materials are not available in Cambodia, we will be sending a container out in January 2008. We will also be taking this opportunity of filling the container with other items which are difficult or expensive to source in Cambodia, such as medical equipment and supplies for the Medical Centre. As the container will be going anyway, any additional items we can cram in, will cost us nothing to transport.

In addition to the things which people might have at home (cotton children’s clothes, durable toys etc), we need some specialist medical / physiotherapy items for the new nursery and items for the new school. If you have any specialist contacts who might be able to assist, we would really appreciate it if you could forward this post to them as well as circulating it to friends / family / contacts / club members etc.

The full list of items required can ge found HERE.

The list is not exhaustive and we have probably left some things off which would be very useful for one of our projects. Please feel free to contact us by e-mail (contact@camkids.org) if you have anything to offer, have any questions or if you would like us to send a ‘formal’ request for items, where this might be required by your company.

As we are all volunteers in full-time work, It would far easier for us if the items could be delivered to us in London or West Sussex, but we could also arrange collection of items in London (easiest), Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire and might be able to arrange collection of large amounts or much needed medical other equipment from elsewhere – please Contact Us.

If you are unable to provide any of the items, but would like to help in other ways, such as making a donation or taking part in a sponsored event to raise money for the charity, please Contact Us for more information.
