Blog entry "Orkun Freerice" From Cambodia!

21 July 2011

Every morning the children at the Damnak Sleng Primary School in Siem Reap, Cambodia, enjoy a tasty breakfast of rice with sauce. It is just one of the many World Food Programme school meals projects, which is supported by Freerice with rice earned by the 1.2 million Freericers (like you) who play every month.

The breakfast is vitally important for these children, as it is often the only meal they will eat for the day. It helps them to concentrate in class so they can grow strong bodies and minds.

The children at Damnak Sleng have one thing to say to you... (watch the video to find out!)

What's in the liquid being poured over the rice? I hope it's more nutritious than it looks, especially if it's a whole day's food for many of the children! Also, it looks like white rice, which doesn't have as many vitamins & as much fiber as brown rice.

YESH!!! And here I thought that all the free rice we help give goes to just Africa. Don't worry my fellow Cambodians, I'm coming and all the other FreeRicers are coming to help! :D

This is amazing! I can't believe I'm giving children food to eat while educating myself! We should spread the news about Freerice - feeding hungry people while learning language and math skills.

I reckon freerice is the best website i've ever been on-but what about the people in the horn of africa?I think sone rice should go over to them.

more people should sign up as it is the easiest way to help kids, and it also fun knowing that your time is not wasting- your making a difference to people's lives.

I think that more people should sign up to Fact: It takes 19,000 grains of rice to feed 1 person for 1 day.

Mon, 07/25/2011 - 20:19 felicetga

I am also very proud to be part of freericers.
For some time I have doubts because of the donations declined both times here.
I'm from Brazil, and here we have many participants, who are the same doubts. Someone explain to us?
Thank you.

Mon, 07/25/2011 - 16:43 diondinosaur

Ten grains of rice is such a small amount, but it's amazing what the users of this site can achieve when we all work towards the same goal.

Thu, 07/21/2011 - 21:58 HelpingEveryone

Yay! Seeing this makes me so happy. :')

Wow, it is difficult to believe that playing simple trivia and vocabulary games can make such an impact on these children's lives. I am proud to be a freericer!
