Mattias trip to Cambodia

Mattias trip to Cambodia


My name is Mattias Karlsson an I’m a 36 year old IT consultant working at CIBER in Stockholm Sweden. I'm taking 2 weeks off to work as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, building houses in Siem Reap Cambodia alongside people who need a decent, affordable place to live.

This blog will serve these purposes: 1) To keep my friends, family and colleagues informed as to the progress 2) To serve as a conduit for fundraising for all those who wish to help me change someones life.

Read on to learn more about my trip, Habitat's work and how you can help. Subscribe to my email list to recieve progress reports.

Thanks for your support. /Mattias

Report from Bulid day 1

WorkingPosted by Mattias Karlsson Oct 27, 2008 18:18
This has been a really long day. We started 07:00 from the hotel. That like 01:00 in Sweden and I still having some Jetlag. Then we took of for a 2 hour drive to the an small Camodian village. There we started to add some walls to a semi-finished house. Its now midnight and I am pretty tired and will go to bed.

On the more private side I did get a 2 USD Haircut yesterday in Siem Reap...
