A Heroic Effort

A huge congratulations and thanks to Tara Taing, who completed the Reading Half Marathon last week in a personal best and raised over £1,300 for CamKids in the process.

Tara is a Chinese Cambodian living in the UK, whose family were able to start a new life in Australia after the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime.

Tara has asked for the money to go to the Rumdoul Thmei school, in Kampong Speu district, which is financed by CamKids. The funds will be extremely welcome, as 2 new teachers started at the school this year and there are plans to build a further 3 classrooms in 2009.

If you would like to raise money for CamKids, please visit our JustGiving site: or contact us at for information and fundraising materials.
