Last summer I visited Cambodia - a country of absolute contrasts! I seen at fist-hand the amazing work of the Bible Society in Cambodia in providing Literacy Classes to children, young people and adults who struggle to read and write. The Bible Society in Cambodia are unlocking God's Word for individuals by teaching them to read in their own language and then providing Scripture for them.
I'm running Edinburgh Half Marathon to raise money for this special project which bring dignity and worth to thousands in this country still living with the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge genocide in the 1970's. The impact of this horiffic piece of world history is that there is a fear of education and learning within Cambodia, especially in the rural areas - it was the educated and those who in positions of leadership who were killed by the Khmer Rouge regime.
Thank you for your support.
