House of Rainbow Bridge – Phnom Penh

March 06, 2011

Happy TreeA week ago, I made a trip to Phnom Penh, Cambodia as part of a team representing Singapore for an International Wedding Soiree. I had never been to Cambodia before and jumped at the chanced when I was invited to be part of the show.

Though our trip was a short one with ‘work’ as an item on the agenda, we took the time to visit the city, some of it’s historical landmarks and to experience the city life of Phnom Penh. It was an eye opener for me and the short time I spent in the city was definitely not enough, I will have to visit Cambodia again.

And a reason for my want to return to Cambodia is to re-visit the House of Rainbow Bridge. The House of Rainbow Bridge, established by Happy Tree Social Services, is a hospice orphanage for HIV+/AIDS affected orphans.

Happy Tree Social Services established House of Rainbow Bridge Hospice Orphanage in Phnom Penh in 2004, providing a home for HIV+/AIDS affected orphans. There, they receive medication and education, as well as love and care. House of Rainbow Bridge symbolizes a bridge connecting the earth to Heaven. With our efforts, we hope they can complete their last journey with dignity and in peace.

Though we only had a small window to visit the orphanage, the short one hour was the highlight of the trip for me. I cannot take credit for organizing the trip to the orphanage – I knew we were going to make a trip but because I didn’t know what to expect about the orphanage, I think made the visit a little more enriching for me. And as I sit here typing out this entry, I realize I am at a loss of words to express the experience that I know has affected me. So, I will just let these pictures do the talking.
