Due to war and destruction the city of Phnom Penh has become a shock to most tourists. Poverty has engulfed the place and women and children are the frailest victims that suffer and feel the impact of destitution. In the desire of the government to help its people, the countries from neighboring land as   well as the United Nations have held hands to help alleviate if not totally avert impoverished families of the land. A program to increase the literacy rate was being done and volunteers from all over the globe come and take active participation in the educational programs. These volunteers have banked on the fact that Cambodia is a safe place to reach out hands and improve quality of life.


The ordeal of having to volunteer in an outreach program is something that is worth looking forward to but the idea of having to do it in a foreign land where the people you will be attending to are victims of political disputes and war, famine and extensive drought, or any natural calamity that has really affected a large fraction, if not the entire populace, who needs courage and strength.

 

Selfless dedication and commitment sometimes do not get reciprocated but being volunteers, these do not matter anymore. It is just a priority that people who engage in humanitarian outreach programs are made secured and has a decent and comfortable place to stay. After all, they have no monetary considerations for their act of altruism.
