Cambodia, here we come!
The organisation of the project "Magical Cambodia" has taken a lot of our time, and it's been a while since we've given you some news, sorry! But the D-Day has arrived and we are flying to Cambodia in a few hours...
Since last time we wrote, an important change has occurred : the photographer and journalist who were supposed to accompany us decided not to be part of the project after all. A disappointment we managed to get over by welcoming Annelise David into the crew! She will be using her competencies as both a social worker and an amateur of filmmaking to offer you as promised a photo and video account of "Magical Cambodia"!
The last rehearsals of Lulu and Kimi's show took place this weekend: no later than monday, we will be presenting it for the first time to the street children taken care of by Krousar Thmey at Siem Reap. We're so excited, as you can imagine!
Thanks to your help, we will be bringing magical and theatrical equipment for the two troupes of disabled children with whom we will be working in the centres of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap: we can't wait to start the creation of the show with them and to share the various steps of it with you!
To follow the project, you can "like" our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/magis.asso) on which we will try to post news and photos on a regular basis!
Again a huge thank you to all of you for making this project possible!
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!
The fund-raising has just come to its official end and it is a SUCCESS!! We have reached 107% of our goal! The Magical Cambodia project will see the light!
Thanks to our 96 Kissbankers, the M’Agis troupe, composed of four of our members –a magician, an actress, a journalist and a photographer-, will be able to go to Cambodia to create a theatrical magic show with the partially-sighted, hearing-impaired or deaf children taken care of by the NGO Krousar Thmey. The kids will then perform the show in the rural areas of Cambodia to promote awareness regarding the various problematics of disability and fight the many prejudices that remain about their condition!
Even more than the others, this project would not have been possible without your generosity!
Thank you again! We’ll keep you posted with updates and photos of this new adventure…
