At this moment in time more than anything Siem Reap needs jobs, especially in ethically-run businesses and social enterprises – jobs with people who care. Let’s make sure we can keep as many jobs as possible, bounce back, and get everyone back into work as soon as possible.
At Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel we are providing accommodation, meals and healthcare to the best of ability. But money for salaries is going to be shorter and shorter.
We need your help
If you would like to assist with a monthly direct debit, you can choose the amount of your choosing and we will put that towards keeping staff employed.
The more we raise, the better.
This situation is likely to last months. If we raise enough, we will be able to continue to support the many extended families who depend on us (and usually the custom of our valued guests) for their income.
On top of the dwindling income, we are now needing to buy safety equipment at heavily inflated prices. Hand sanitiser, alcohol, gloves and face masks have become scarce and exorbitant to buy. These are dispersed to frontline staff and despite our best cost-saving measures, these are eating up our remaining funds too.
Thank you for caring. Thank you for helping. Cambodia and other developing nations are disproportionately affected by this. One of our drivers told us “I have no money to feed the kids”. The overwhelming majority of people though tell us they just need money. They will source their own food, schooling and healthcare if we provide them with income.
When things get back to normal, make Cambodia the first place on your list to visit. Spend money locally. Enjoy the amazing holiday culture that Siem Reap offers. Help families and help everyone come back from abject poverty.
For donations we will take payment in these ways. Email ilana to discuss in more detail if you have any questions.To sponsor a staff member, we invite you to set up a monthly direct debit as this will help us to continue to pay our staff monthly.
