Following decades of war under the Khmer rouge, Cambodia has seen its level of poverty decline but huge inequalities persist. The food and economic crises in 2008 and 2009 led to an exodus, mostly fleeing rural poverty for the cities. This has resulted in concentrated poverty in both rural and ...

Miller & Vincent - Build Cambodia!
- My Story
Our Mission is …
“To increase people’s wealth, health and well-being through property whether they are 5 or 5,000 miles away.”
In 2017, we started our business, Miller and Vincent Properties, to create beautiful shared homes for people to enjoy. However, we quickly realised that serving people in the UK, was just half of the story. We not only want to help those who live across the road from us but we also want to help those across the globe who too, really need our help.
Recently, we partnered with Habitat for Humanity to do just that and we are thrilled that we can finally execute our mission and make it into a reality.
In February 2020, we will be travelling to Cambodia to build two homes for families in poverty - some who currently live in squalid slums.
We will build these homes on stilts out of compressed earth blocks made from dry inorganic subsoil and non-expansive clay which will form the walls of the new houses. We will be working hard to lay foundations, construct walls and build roofs. We will be working in difficult conditions and it will be both very physically and emotionally challenging.
We have committed to raise £2,800 by 18th December 2019 - giving us just over 1 month. It is an ambitious target but one we must achieve so that we can help these families.
The homes that we will build, will be a foundation from which the two families can achieve the strength, stability and the independence they need to build a better and safer life for themselves and for their families.
Please give generously and help us to change these families' lives for the better and for the generations to come.
