The Foundation

Green Leaf Foundation is the charitable arm of Green Leaf Boutique hotel. Cambodia's first and only nonprofit hotel.
It was founded by a group of Canadian humanitarians who fell in love with Cambodia and wanted to make a difference. It all started with three friends, Amir, Simon & Damien. Then slowly the family grew.
Green Leaf Foundation has four main programs.
- Orphanage: over 200 children receive food, medical support and education at a local orphanage
- Women's education: Mobile education teams providing life skill to single mothers
- Water Purification: Digging wells and installing water filters for local communities

About Cambodia

Located between Thailand, Vietnam and Laos on the Indochinese peninsula, Cambodia is a country with a rich history. Under Khmer rule from about 600 A.D. to 1200, Cambodia was at the center of a vast empire.  In the latter part of their reign, the Khmers, who were Hindus, built great temple cities with sophisticated water systems.  By the end of the 12th century, Cambodia embraced Buddhism and the temples changed with the times.  Thai and Vietnamese invaders. along with drought, slowly eroded Cambodia's influence on the region and by the mid-1800's France colonized the region.  The country regained its independence in 1949 but remained in a French Colony.  Total independence was gained after the end of the First Indochina War in 1954.
 
  Despite declaring itself neutral, Cambodia was slowly drawn into the Vietnamese War by North Vietnam and the Viet Cong, who were using eastern Cambodia as a staging area.  During this time, the Khmer Rouge, a local Communist guerilla group, overthrew the government and seized power.  The Khmer Rouge devastated the population, massacring approximately one-third of its people. In 1979, the Vietnamese ousted the Khmer Rouge and installed a pro-Hanoi government which remained in power until 1993.  Free elections were held in May of 1993 and the county has remained a democracy since.
 
Geographically, the country is mainly a plane, centered around Tonle Sap, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and is surrounded by mountains.  Cambodia's biodiversity is centered around Tonle Sap, located 10 km from the temples at Angkor Wat.  This area is of great importance to the country's economy.

Passports Not only is a passport essential, it needs to be valid for at least six months or Cambodian immigration will not issue a visa.
It’s also important to make sure that there is plenty of space left in the passport, as a Cambodian visa alone takes up one page.
Losing a passport is not the end of the world, but it is a serious inconvenience. To expedite the issuing of a new passport, keep a photocopy of your passport photo page.

Visas
Visas to enter Cambodia are necessary and can be purchased on arrival or ahead of time on-line.  
on-arrival cost US$30
On-line - https://www.cambodiaimmigration.org/   $79

Vaccinations
If you plan to get vaccinated before your trip, consider the following:
Specialised travel-medicine clinics are the best source of information, as they stock all available vaccines and can give specific recommendations for each region.
Doctors will take into account factors such as past vaccination history, length of trip, activities and existing medical conditions.
Most vaccines don’t produce immunity until at least two weeks after they’re given.
Ask for an International Certificate of Vaccination (otherwise known as 'the yellow booklet'), which will list all vaccinations given.
Recommended Vaccinations
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the following vaccinations for travellers to the Mekong region:
Adult diphtheria and tetanus Single booster recommended if you haven’t had one in the previous 10 years.
Hepatitis A Provides almost 100% protection for up to a year; a booster after 12 months provides at least another 20 years’ protection.
Hepatitis B Now considered routine for most travellers. Given as three shots over six months. A rapid schedule is also available, as is a combined vaccination with hepatitis A. Lifetime protection occurs in 95% of people.
Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) Two doses of MMR are required unless you have had the diseases. Many young adults require a booster.
Polio Only one booster is required as an adult for lifetime protection.
Typhoid Recommended unless your trip is less than a week long and only to developed cities. The vaccine offers around 70% protection, lasts for two to three years and comes as a single shot.
Required Vaccinations
The only vaccine required by international regulations is for yellow fever. Proof of vaccination is only required if you have visited a country in the yellow-fever zone within the six days before entering the Mekong region; if travelling to the Mekong region from Africa or South America, check to see if proof of vaccination is required. It's only likely to be an issue if flying directly from an affected country to a major gateway such as Bangkok.

Please notify us of any allergies or health conditions.
