Fundriding – across Cambodia
Fundriding – das bedeutet: 1.200 Kilometer auf dem Roller quer durch ein faszinierendes Land mit atemberaubenden Landschaften, Eintauchen in die Hilfsprojekte der Kleinen Hilfsaktion, emotionale Begegnungen mit Menschen in Gegenden, die kaum ein Tourist erreicht – und vor allem: Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe für die Menschen vor Ort. Denn jeder Fundrider ist nicht nur Reisender, sondern wird auch Entwicklungshelfer. Jeder gefahrene Kilometer leistet einen kleinen aber nachhaltigen Beitrag für die Entwicklungshilfe in Kambodscha.
Es gibt keine andere Möglichkeit, ein Land wie Kambodscha authentischer zu erleben als mit der Fundriding Tour. Genial und einmalig.Ingo Riedeberger
Die bittere Armut der Menschen, gepaart mit deren unfassbaren Freundlichkeit und im gleichen Moment die wahnsinnige Schönheit der unberührten Natur zu spüren geht geheimnisvoll intensiv unter die Haut.Irene & Schoko
I still have to think about our tour every day – just unforgettable! That’s why I have to go back in December!Manfred Neumann
INSTRUKTOR | Roland Debschütz
Former motorcycle racer and pillion specialist. He earns his living as instructor for racer schools, perfection- and safety training and is probably one of the most experienced racing taxi drivers in Europe. As a founding member and managing director of the Kleinen Hilfsaktion e.V. he provides concrete, practical and unbureaucratic help to self-help in Cambodia since 2007. Roland Debschütz and Jens Kuck will accompany the two groups of six. Roland has already accomplished the Tour in Nov 2015 together with Jens, Susanna, Bong and Phalla and travels through the south-east of Asia by scooter for 30 years now.
GUIDE | Rolf Externbrink
Rolf Externbrink is a long-time companion of the Kleine Hilfsaktion. With his marketing agency springer f3 and their donation initiative opportunities, he and his team support the fundraising activities of the association. Since 2014 he has been to Cambodia three times, visited the projects of the KHA and reported on our blog and social media channels. Also the Fundriding-Tour 2017 will be presented “live” to domestic screens. He drives a Yamaha classic car (TR1). As an additional qualification, Rolf can refer to his experience as a kradmelder of the 6th panzergrenadierdivision in the years 84/85 ?
GUIDE | David
David, whose real name is Sin Kouk, was born in 1981 in a refugee camp in Thailand. Two of his nine siblings died of malaria when his family had returned to Cambodia after the ceasefire with the Khmer Rouge in 1993. David stopped going to school after the 7th grade so that he could work and support his family financially. He married in 2010 but he and his wife have remained childless so far. His wife runs a little greengrocer’s shop close to their rented apartment in Battambang City. The couple dreams of saving enough money to buy their own land, build their own home and start their own business some day.
GUIDE | Mr. Phalla
Mr. Phalla (pronounced Poulla) is the second guide and will lead the slightly faster group. Phalla has also been a longtime friwnd of Roland and also leads his own development organization (BBC). BBC is located in Pursat and is also a partnering organization of the kleinen Hilfsaktion. Phalla knows Cambodia and its peculiarities very well, as well. Same as Mr. Bong, he speaks very good english and is a very sympathetic person. Fun and a good mood is also guaranteed in his group. Phalla is a specialist when it comes to improvising and often organises quicker than the actual problems appear. Somehow he always knows someone, who knows a person… he is the perfect complement and a good friend of Mr. Bong. So we have managed to put together an excellent team.
