The Cambodia Children’s Fund Raiser was a huge success with over 250 people attending the Ivy Ballroom and $300 K raised to assist the Cambodia Children’s Fund. It was 15 years since Scott Neeson started the charity so an amazing milestone.

The Cambodian Children’s Fund is a fantastic, highly transparent charity providing life changing education and leadership to Cambodia’s poorest children. If you would like to get involved, donate or sponsor a child visit www.cambodianchildrensfund.org

CCF was founded by a remarkable Australian, Scott Neeson, who gave up his highly successful Hollywood career to live with and help the garbage dump community in Steung Meanchey, Phnom Penh.

As a country, Cambodia is still today recovering from the horrors that occurred under Pol Pot during the Khmer Rouge atrocities of the late 1970s (when the country was known as Kampuchea) which took the lives of over 2 million of its people – mostly the educated middle class. Almost an entire generation was lost.

CCF supports over 10,000 of the most impoverished Cambodian children and their families through education and community programmes, providing nutritious meals, clean water, health care, child care, leadership training and much more.

Their schools have an attendance rate of 96% and CCF continues to be amongst the highest rated charities in the world with top ratings for the past 10 years from America’s largest independent charity evaluator, Charity Navigator, based on fiscal responsibility, transparency and effectiveness.

CCF is also a recognised DGR charity within Australia so gifts and donations are tax deductible.
