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 day 4

WorkingPosted by Mattias Karlsson Oct 31, 2008 17:51
A new bulid site. A fresh start. The build site is two different houses, one wooden repair and a brick house. The wooden house looks like our first on the first day. New skilled workers and the other half of the Habitat team. It rained in the morning and most of the day and it was difficult do get the work done. The Cambodian skilled workers don't really like working in the rain. Jeanette, a Swedish independent journalist/reporter joined our team today. She is traveling Asia for three month to document different types of volunteer work. I started work with construction of some window frames and at the end of the day we had completed an entire wall.
