Rice Runs

Project Rice Run | Since 2018

Rice runs are an extremely important project that we undertake.

We have a number of steps we follow to ensure those struggling are the ones receiving the rice. We have a field officer who assesses a village and works closely with the ‘Sangkat’; community leader to find families who need this most.

We give each family a minimum of 30kg, depending on how many people are in the family. At times this rice can last up to 3 months.

Although this is a very simple project, it gives these people a tiny financial break, where they can put their money to their health, homes, and potentially more nutritious additions to their diets. This is completely up to the families, we simply give them this opportunity.

An Insight

When we undertake a rice run project, it’s not always a one off donation. We have visited some villages up to three times since 2018 depending on the assessment we receive from our local advisor.

When we deliver rice to the village, we gain a confronting insight into the poverty, lack of education and many more alarming issues. Already our rice run village visits have inspired our House Building Project. We’ve also made several visits to Koleap Village, where we are seeing a massive need for an education project.

Rice Runs to Date

Below are pictures of our completed rice runs throughout the villages. Already we are proud to have reached 514 families.

March 2020

2020 was not the year that went according to plan. However, 2020 was the year we completed our biggest rice run to date, 10,000kg – TEN WHOLE TONNES!

The size of the crowd was phenomenal
What we initially thought would be 2,000kg’s of rice, turned into 3,000, then to 5,000, 6,000 and finally…
March 6th, we delivered 10,020kgs of rice to 334 families, across 7 villages in rural Kratié.
