I am just back from a two week trip to Cambodia and am amazed by how much progress we have made in the two communities at opposite ends of the country. I have come to realise that when we unite around a common cause and commit to working together to address a problem, that’s when real change happens. This is what has taken place between RBK Fresh Fit Food / BBTG and our partners in Cambodia, Laos & Kenya.
We believe everyone in this world has the right to the nutrition necessary to live life to his or her full potential. Since our first trip to Cambodia in 2015, Bad Boy Turned Good & RBK Fresh Fit Food has grown more and more rapidly — and the ways in which we seek to end hunger continues to evolve. From the putting into practice of workable community development projects to our meal packaging outreach that connects the passion of local volunteers, we strive to make an impact on hunger by building resilience, self-sufficiency and empowerment among the communities we work in and with.
Our volunteer-packaged food packs support children’s attendance at school, motivate adults to learn a new trade or strengthen hospital patients’ health in order to bring about complete and transformational growth in each of their lives.
In 2018, for the first time we responded to an emergency, when parts of Laos were flooded and many lost their lives and many more their homes. From droughts to floods and in conflict zones, food is often the most immediate need and we works through our in-country partners to address these needs where possible….
Food means life for starving children, and gives them hope. Cold facts can tell the impact of hunger. But to truly measure its effects, and the nourishment and promise a meal can give to a hungry child, there is no substitute to being there.
Corruption is deep-rooted and Cambodia is still one of the world’s poorest countries so on our recent trip to Cambodia, we travelled to the most rural parts of the country, into the jungle to meet with the people that lived in poverty there. To the mountains, to spend time with the Mon-Khmer.
We distributed food packs, feed orphans and organised soccer tournaments for the children in these places. “There is no doubt that the meals make a difference each and every day in the lives of the children that we spent our time with,” says Ross, founder of Bad Boy Turned Good / RBK Fresh Fit Food. “We saw children eat their small meal but take a portion home to share with other family members or save for another meal. They had beautiful smiles, were happy that we were there, and enjoyed the activities that we did with them.”
I would like to thank all those who donated, gave their time to support our mission. We are only small but in 2018 we have managed to give out 22,000 meals in 3 countries.
Regardless of your location on the map, age, schedule or resources, we believe you can make a positive difference in peoples lives. Small contributions can add up to a BIG impact. We have experienced this first hand.
You can be certain your help is needed and wanted on our trips. Each trip engages you in important community development projects, cooking in the hearts of rural villages, walks through the jungle giving out food packs, such as teaching conversational English, caring for at-risk children and families, teaching at local slum schools or playing football — and so much more.
