Niemans lend a helping hand

Through the efforts of Ted and Bonnie Nieman of Maryland, USA, over 500 wells have been installed to provide fresh water to the poorest areas of Cambodia, a sewing center for disadvantaged women has been opened in Siem Reap and now they are outfitting and rebuilding a school two hours from the country's main tourist attraction, Angkor Wat. The Nieman's have simply never stopped after a three-day visit to Cambodia changed their lives forever. Working with the Shinta Mani Hotel, and the Institute of Hospitality - a vocational training facility funded from the operations of the hotel as well as from private individuals - Ted and Bonnie formed where 100% of all funds collected are sent directly to Cambodia, there are no overhead costs or fees with everything done on a strictly volunteer basis. Here's a link to their website.
