SAVE KHMER HUNGER, INC., a non-profit organization was adopted by a Khmer Hunger Relief
Our vision is to relieve famine among the Cambodian people (Khmer ) currently living in Cambodia. Since 1975,Khmers went through tremendous hardship during the cruel Pol Pot communist regime (The KILLING FIELD) and its aftermath. For more than three decades, millions of Khmer people have died and nowadays many continue to suffer from starvation. Our goal is to assist Khmers in Cambodia, who are living in poverty in lack of basic necessities such food, sanitary water, shelter, medical care, and basic education. Our primary focus is reducing the hunger .
Save Khmer Hunger, Inc. is not affiliated with any political parties. It will not promote or support any political organization. Our board of 11 directors are elected every four years, and our committee has a one year term. This organization does not have a paid position. The members of the leadership
Our fundraising comes from:
- Direct donations from friends and families (Khmers, Americans, and others...)
- Annual fundraising drives through concerts/parties
- Sub sales, bake sales, car washes, etc.
- We work for support and contribution from other organizations
Because we are directly involved in purchasing and the distribution of supplies, most of your contribution is used to benefit the most poverty stricken families in Cambodia.
The distributions are determined largely by collecting information from: people, local authorities, media broadcast, radio broadcast, and newspapers. After we gain information, we do site visits and assessments of situations with local people to determine who is in need of the most assistance.
Lack of food made Cambodian people suffer greatly for over 30 years. It is tremendously hard for one to sleep with their stomach empty for almost every night, with only tears on their pillows to solve the pain and suffering. They live day to day wondering WHERE, WHAT, and WHEN is the RELIEF coming.30 cents in US dollars can provide one meal of rice for one person.
Please join us to help ease the suffering Cambodians by participating in these manners:
1- Adopt an organization, with an increased number of organizations, the Khmer relief can be more effective.
2- Make donations to Save Khmer Hunger, Inc. We will work to make your money worthwhile by directly assisting the victims.
3- If you’ve already engaged in a humanitarian organization, donate a small portion of the fund to relieve Khmer people in starvation.
4- Make contributions directly to the famished Khmer families yourself. Aid from many generous people from every direction makes a great difference.
