Teddy Bears Give pleasure to kids in need

An update from the Newmarket VIEW Club

Just a few of the teddy bears set for the children in Cambodia

The founder of the Cambodia Clean Water and Toilet Project is Darrel Steer, who was the guest speaker at the Newmarket VIEW Clubs meeting in May. 

Darrel went to Cambodia in 2015 for a holiday and he has not moved back home since! While there, he witnessed the poor standard of living and poverty throughout the rural villages. He observed that there was no access to clean water creating unsanitary living conditions and illness. Volunteers here in Australia knit up teddy bears to give pleasure to the many children in the Cambodia Clean Water and Toilet Project.

Post COVID lockdown, people are seeking the opportunity to connect with others in the community. VIEW needs to make sure the organisation is in the forefront of the minds of those who are looking to expand their horizons. Make new friends and give back to the community.

The Newmarket VIEW Club is part of a network of over 300 clubs and 15,000 women throughout Australia. Our members used raffles and donations to raise funds to continue to support the six students following The Smith Family’s Learning for Life Program, by sponsoring their school activities. These children were among the hardest hit during school shutdowns, as many didn’t have the right tools they needed to learn from home.
