Cambodia’s organization to hold bike race to raise funds for vulnerable kids

PHNOM PENH, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) — Village Focus International ( VFI), a non-government organization, is scheduled to organize the Angkor Wat Bike Race & Ride on December 1 in Siem Reap province in order to raise funds to support vulnerable children, according to an organization’s press release on Wednesday.

“Cyclists from all over the world are invited to sign up to the Angkor Wat Bike Race & Ride,” said the press release.

Entering its seventh year, the annual charity fundraising event encourages participants of all ages and fitness levels to cycle through the beautiful temples of the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Wat temple complex to help raise funds for VFI’s life changing work supporting vulnerable children and victims of sex trafficking, it said.

Since first held in 2006, the bike event has grown each year and raised a total of 150,000 U.S. dollars towards empowering young people and communities to break out of the cycle of poverty and exploitation.

VFI implements three human rights-based programs throughout Laos and Cambodia, in cooperation with NGO partners.

Rick Reece, the VFI’s director, said that the Angkor Wat Bike Race & Ride offers bikers from around the world to join in solidarity to ride on the Angkor roads through forest, rice fields and the magnificent ancient temple complex.
