Day 51-Cambodia

Siem Reap

[Touch A Life]

Today I was supposed to be volunteering but instead I spent the day battling a mild case of food poisoning. Surprisingly, I’ve never had food poisoning in my life, but there’s a first for everything!

A friend had connected me to an International humanitarian organization called Touch A Life. In Siem Reap, 3000 meals are served to those in need through the Free Meal Program. By no means am I one of those tourists who will volunteer for a day, take a ton of pictures, and post them on social media as some kind of hero. Nor am I willing to spend time visiting an orphanage due to child trafficking and corruption. So I figured why not help cook a nice meal and serve it to locals who need it, as it’s similar to volunteering at a soup kitchen at home.

If you are ever in Siem Reap and have an extra day or two to help out, check out their website
