Mayoral Community Benefit Fund

Cambodia Vision requested $500 from the Mayoral Community Benefit Fund to go towards for voluntary work treating blindness and basic medical services in Cambodia later this year.

At the Council meeting of 25 August 2015, Council approved the donation for $500 from the Mayoral Community Benefit Fund.

Cambodia Vision is a non-government organisation established to provide treatment and prevention of blindness in regional Cambodia. Over 50 medical and non-medical volunteers travel to Cambodia yearly. 11 of these volunteers live in the Fairfield Local Government Area and will be making this trip during 2015.

I would like to acknowledge Ms Thida Yang, NSW Public Relations Officer for Cambodia Vision who is here tonight.

Please join me in congratulating Cambodia Vision and wishing them all the best for their upcoming trip to Cambodia.
