The Independent Order of Odd Fellows introduced at the 2003 Sessions of The Sovereign Grand Lodge in Halifax, Nova Scotia by the incoming Sovereign Grand Master, Henry "Hank" Dupray and adopted; the project named "Odd Fellows Village." The village consists of 15 family homes, a social centre, a medical facility and kindergarten facility, which will house approximately 150 orphaned and AIDS affected children ages 0-12. The village is a joint project in conjunction with SOS Kinderdorf International and has been built in Battambang, in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
Our Charge: Educating the Orphan & Relieving the Distressed
There is an entire generation of orphaned children because of the "Killing Fields
" of Cambodia. These children are subject to exploitation in the sex slave industry without proper protection like the Odd Fellow Village. Actress and producer Lucy Liu recently released a documentary (visit http://www.redlightthemovie.com/trailer.html
) about the heinous crimes being committed against these innocent children.
By supporting the Odd Fellow Village project you are helping to protect these children, care for their medical problems and giving them an education. For more information on how to support this Odd Fellow project visit: http://www.ioof.org/sosvillage.html
You can also donate through normal everyday purchases by making purchases through this site (IOOF SOS Village
) and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the support of our project.
