A good evening; wonderful man to play the cello and fund raise for such a great cause. It lasted over an hour and he spoke and played for us and told stories, probably about 300 people went.

It was a wonderful night and a privilege to actually hear this man speak, with a bonus cello concert. He has a story that anyone who travels to Siem reap should hear and share. Take time out of your travels to experience this concert.

A little bit boring , all for a good cause , but a little bit contrived , got the feeling donations were expected no matter what , place looked dirty .

Hey to those who have donated blood at the Kantha Bopha hospital in Siem Reap. A new backpacker - friend that I met travelling through Cambodia went there. She said that they used sterile equipment. She was shown the sterile needle. But she has not seen the equipment come out of a sterile package. I really want to go there, but I am also oversensitive about this stuff. So can someone give me some advice there? Maybe someone who has actually worked/ volumteered there?
