CCF Opens 300th World Housing Home

It’s been a really big week at Cambodian Children’s Fund.

CCF, in partnership with World Housing, gifted its 300th home and opened a new housing community for impoverished families in the heart of Phnom Penh’s former garbage dump community.

The Minister of Social Affairs, Veteran, Youth and Rehabilitation H.E Vong Soth attended the ceremony and cut the ribbon for the 300th home built in the past 18 months. Sixty additional homes will be gifted in the next few months in Steung Meanchey and throughout Cambodia.

The new homes provide safe and secure housing to families who have struggled through years of poverty and unsafe housing.

The homes include access to edible gardens, social areas, playgrounds, clean water, toilet blocks, safety and security.

“It’s an honour to have his excellency H.E Vong Soth join us today to mark the opening of the 300th World Housing home in Cambodia,” said CCF Founder and Executive Director Scott Neeson.

“The World Housing communities allow more children to live at home with their families. For many of these families, it’s the first time they’ve ever lived in a house with security, washrooms, hygiene, and a clean environment.” said Neeson.

The World Housing homes are portable and built out of galvanized steel and other supplies, which are all locally sourced within the community.
