Emergency Flood Appeal
Don Bosco Tech School in Sihanoukville, Cambodia - August 9, 2019
Monsoonal rains have lashed South East Asia and caused widespread damage and confusion. This photo was taken at the Don Bosco School in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, however the image is similar to thousands of scenes being played around the country, in neighboring Myanmar and even as far as India. (where countless amounts of people are still trying to get their lives back on track following the devastation of floods from last year).
Please, we desperately need whatever help you can give, to provide food, water, shelter, first aid and comfort, to those who now need it the most.
With a presence in most countries of the developing world, the Salesians are well placed to make responses that are quick, compassionate and generous to those in need during emergencies such as natural disasters.
Salesian Missions Australia purpose is to support the vocational teaching of underprivileged young women, men, boys and girls in developing countries, in order that they find employment and become self-sufficient contributing members of their nation.

Staff and students put their bikes on the dinning room tables to escape the rising waters.
