Each year, some students from our Bachelor of Laws programs travel to the Kingdom of Cambodia to experience Cambodian culture, and to learn about human rights issues, violence against women, the exploitation of children, and Cambodia’s recovery from genocide under the Khmer Rouge in the late 1970s.
One of the organisations the CQUniversity students visit is the Cambodian Women’s Crisis Center (CWCC), which provides support to women who have been raped, women who have been trafficked and forced into labour, and women who have fled domestic violence.
When the next group of students travels to Cambodia in April 2018, course coordinator Dr Anthony Marinac has promised to eat a tarantula – a real one, not a toy one! – in return for donations for the great work of the CWCC.
So far, over $450 has been raised, but more donations, big and small, are desperately needed.
Donations can be made to a Commonwealth Bank account, BSB 064-001, Account Number 1181-4376, Account name Anthony Marinac.
You can learn more about the CWCC at http://www.cwcc.org.kh/
And stand by for photos of Anthony trying to stomach the real thing, in Cambodia in late April!
