On Monday 19th of January, my daughter Antara will start a 24 hour fast at noon. She will only drink water and fruit juice. She is doing this to try and empathize for those in Cambodia who only get one meal a day


I am Antara Sethumadhavan, Grade8 student at UWCSEA Singapore. 

Tabitha is a 30 year old charity organisation that raises awareness and money for the people of Cambodia. This organisation raises money in particular for the poorest of the poor in Cambodia. Many live in terrible poverty because Cambodia has been deeply affected by the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot Regime. Tabitha builds houses for families whose previous houses were made out of flimsy materials and weren’t high above the ground. Tabitha provides houses high above the ground that protect the homes during flood seasons. They also help by building water wells as while Cambodia doesn't lack in water,  their sources aren’t clean and pure. Tabitha also supports families by encouraging them understand the importance of savings with their Savings Programme.

On the 27th of March 2015, I will be part of the volunteer team who will go to Cambodia to actually build houses. As a group of 80 students, we need to raise a total of $52,000 to pay for the materials and wells. It costs $1400 per house and we will be building 40 houses. The group will be split into two. One group will go to Prey Veng and build 20 houses while the other will go to Svay Rieng and build another 20 houses. We are half way there with our fundraising efforts.

On Monday 19th of January, I will be doing a 24 hour fast. It will start on Monday noon and end on Tuesday noon. I will only be able to drink water and fruit juice. I will be doing this to try and empathise for those in Cambodia who only get one meal a day on average. I am trying to get as many sponsors as possible to help me with this programme. I would be delighted if you could help support me with my cause by making a donation. If you would like to, please use the online payment options here or get back to my dad. 100% of your donation amount goes to Tabitha and we are taking donations until 16th February 2015.

Thank you! Antara
