a magical red tuk tuk and a plea from John.

In CategoryJohns blog

Peter Greenwell, a member of The Rotary Club of Beaudesert, has been to see us in Cambodia and loves what we are doing and trying to do.

Peter paid for this troop carrying tuk tuk. It is primarily for getting our potential high school students to High School. We will get about 15 Cambodian teenagers in this vehicle. It will also be used for ferrying children and infirm where they need to be. One or both benches fold up so making a strong cargo carrying vehicle.

We bought it last week and took delivery with sign writing on April 19.

Its a brand new model and catches the eye does it not.


On the 20th, Easter Sunday, we drove our beautiful magic red tuk tuk home through Phnom Penh, through rural Cambodia to our villages. She blends in well eh?

We got her home to a very warm welcome. Thankyou Peter

So…. now I’d like you to look at this second hand but as new American Ford ambulance, equipped at the asking price of US$23,000 here in Cambodia…


We need this ambulance. We have a Clinic and all permission from the government to operate as a Hospital/Clinic and Pharmacy – but we have no Doctors. The regional (District) government has a large regional clinic but no money – but they have DOCTORS. They have no AMBULANCE. If we buy them an ambulance they immediately give us Doctors on shift and the region (Kamchay Mear) uses our ambulance.

PLEASE please please ask yourself or friends or business friends for help to buy our ambulance.

Please imagine the advertising space all over this ambulance… You wouldn’t drum up any business in Cambodia but I think as a world citizen a photo of this ambulance on an office wall and in advertising would do no harm.

A donation within Australia is tax deductible, elsewhere I’m not sure.

Our children and our families need this ambulance, please try to help. Contact me for any questions and/or bank details or through the website for paypal (donate section)

For PayPal please click on “Donate” then click on the red ‘Donate now’.  Your donation however big or small goes from PayPal to The Rotary Club of Beaudesert (part of Rotary International) and then directly to us in Cambodia.

We received our first donation of $10 late last week and then $1500 from the UK. Both donations were through Paypal then via Beaudesert Rotary Club and we received it ALL in Cambodia in a matter of hours. Please tell your business friends about the ambulance. Thanks from John in Cambodia.

Thank you and from John in the villages in 35C of heat!

Again, thanks a million times over Peter. John
