TWO Castle Hill RSL staff members will be offering a helping hand to people in Cambodia in May.
Jessica Acosta and Amy Jordison will be in Cambodia for a week as part of the help2help program, which is running the charity tour as part of promoting its work in Cambodia.
While visiting various parts of Cambodia, Ms Acosta and Ms Jordison will deliver food and stationery packs to villages, visit a school and participate in a help2help project.
The two women will represent Castle Hill RSL after the organisation offered the opportunity for staff members to join the help2help tour.
Ms Acosta, who is an executive host at the RSL, said she is looking forward to helping people in Cambodia.
“I want to help others in need,” she said.
“I have always wanted to do something like this. To go there as part of a group and working with help2help, I feel it is the best way to do it.”
Ms Acosta said she is looking forward to sharing the experience with Ms Jordison, who have become friends since Ms Acosta joined the RSL more than a year ago.
“It is not going to be easy, so it definitely good to have support,” Ms Acosta said.
“I’m really excited.”
The tours starts in Cambodia’s capital city Phnom Penh on May 4 and finishes on May 11 in Siem Reap, which is the second biggest capital in the country.
