Welcome To Awareness Cambodia

Awareness Cambodia USA is a Public Charity, overseas humanitarian organization working with Awareness Cambodia AU to rebuild the children of Cambodia by working to relieve poverty and encourage development of life skills through participation in self-sustaining projects.  Established by Russ and Janet Landreth in cooperation with the Australian founder Dr. Gary Hewett.


Awareness Cambodia Inc was established in 1996 by Perth dentist, Dr Gary Hewett in response to the incredible suffering and poverty experienced by the Cambodian people after the execution of 25% of its population under Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot.

This experience birthed Awareness Cambodia and for over a decade now we have worked on the ground targeting the ever-changing needs of Cambodia. Ideas such as Sunshine House, Eco-Farm, House of Progress, Operation Nightingale and the Internet Café have been our first child steps to seeing a dream become reality.   If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that ordinary people like us can make a difference. I invite and look forward to your joining in our mission; building a better, brighter future for Cambodia.
