We support two ventures in a Cambodian Province called Battambang. Both ventures come under the auspices of the Apostolic Prefecture of Battambang, administered by the Jesuits and currently under the leadership of Bishop Kike.
The diocese has a number of action areas including pastoral accompaniment, education, agriculture and rural development, support for people with disabilities, improving health, and the promotion of Cambodian culture.
The first venture is to get disabled and landmine affected children to the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon where they compete over various distances in wheel chairs and on crutches. The event is held in support of those affected by anti-personnel devices. It gives the children a much needed lift and assists in keeping the government on track to clear the country of landmines by 2025.
The second venture is to assist with the funding of the Lidy House Welcome Centre (Lidy House). This is a home for vulnerable young people who, without the assistance of the Prefecture, would be destined for unemployment or precarious employment with the increased risk of falling into the hands of people traffickers.
St Thomas More College works directly with the Prefecture that runs the Arrupe Centre for those with disabilities and the Welcome Centre for vulnerable children and young adults. The College provides the funds directly to the Prefecture to ensure that they are not diminished through red tape and agencies. In this way the funds have a direct and meaningful impact.
Each year, selected students and staff from St Thomas More College travel to Cambodia to compete in solidarity with the disabled children from the Arrupe Centre and visit the young people living at the Lidy House Welcome Centre.
