Sean Simmons Travel are proud to support two very special causes.
The Sunrise Children’s Villages are three orphanages located in Phnom Phen, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, Cambodia. The Australia Cambodia Foundation started in September 1993 following the first visit by Geraldine and a friend in 1993. The orphanages are known as Sunrise Children’s Villages and they care for hundreds of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged Cambodian children. Their third Sunrise Children’s Village in Sihanoukville is generously sponsored by Computershare, Australia, through its worldwide Change a Life staff-giving program. This centre gives love, a home, medical care and education to more than 200 HIV-affected children. Read more at http://www.scv.org.au/
The Menzies School of Health Research is Australia’s only medical research institute dedicated to improving Indigenous health and well-being. They have a 28-year history of scientific discovery and public health achievement. Menzies was established in 1985 as a body corporate of the Northern Territory Government under the Menzies Act 1985. This Act was amended in 2004 to formalise the relationship with Charles Darwin University (CDU). Menzies is now a major partner of CDU and constitutes a school within the University’s Institute of Advanced Studies. Their work addresses critical issues such as mental health, nutrition, substance abuse, child health and development, as well as chronic diseases such as cancer, kidney disease and heart disease. They also lead global research into life-threatening illnesses in the Asia-Pacific, such as malaria and tuberculosis. They endeavour to break the cycle of disease and to reduce health inequities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region, particularly for disadvantaged populations. Their mandate is to seek enduring solutions to problems that matter; the kind that when tackled, have the potential to make an immense difference to the quality of lives both here and abroad.
