Our team has several years of experience in humanitarian projects, especially in South East Asia.
Barbara and Linda, met while living on Borneo in 2004-2010 and have supported the Lindalva Center in Phnom Penh, since 2008 through the generosity of the people they knew in Brunei. so far, they have made a dozen visits to Cambodia. While in Brunei, they have also helped support the group 'Helping Hands Penan' by selling handmade local products from the Penan tribes of Borneo. When Barbara moved to Malaysia, she continued her support to the Penan project. Linda, who moved to China, lent a hand to 'Hopeful Hearts' in Chengdu and raised funds for several local projects.
Now, they both live in the USA and want to continue their support in Asia and the rest of the world through AKUN.
Christine and Linda visited Cambodia in February 2015!
Then Linda went again in February 2016 with a new volunteer Natalia. During both trips, they went to the Lindalva Center where they met with the staff and students. They also went to the countryside of Chumkiri in Kampot Province to identify families in need of housing improvement. There, they also met with the youth group, the women's group and the men's group to discuss skills training. They discussed with the women's group how to make the garlands, ornaments and pouches.
So check the new photos and videos of all these exciting projects on the different pages of this website!!
