Hi everyone, my name is Jia En. Been thinking to go on a volunteer overseas program for some time and finally made the decision to go this coming October! I will be heading to Cambodia for Build A House project together with Operation Hope Foundation (OHF). While the minimum donation is $450, I wish to raise a higher amount through this platform. Donations will go toward the house built by the team and any excess funds will be treated as a general donation to OHF. You can find more information here at: https://ohf.org.sg/open-teams/.
Will be updating the progress of this campaign through my social media pages (IG: @ajafighting). As my pages are private, do let me know you have send me an invite and let's connect from there!
It is my first time trying a fundraising campaign and I hope we can play a part in this good cause together! (:
