This project we did back in February 2010 was very enjoyable, satisfying and was greatly appreciated by the recipients. Helping Hand Orphanage in Kampong Cham had a piece of land across a deep gully which runs into the Mekong River. To access the land they’d built a bamboo bridge, but it wasn’t accessible in the wet season and the bridge was holding back the floodwater and causing creekbank erosion. With some funds provided by BP Australia we employed a few local labourers and built this 50 metre suspension bridge in 4 days. In last year’s huge wet season it went completely under water but survived unscathed.
