Dear Donors,

decided to take on the challenge of The 4 Deserts Grand Slam (completing all of
The 4 Deserts in one calendar year) six months ago. Only 47 people worldwide
have ever completed this 1000km challenge and in 2016 I will be attempting to
add my name to that list. It’s going to be a tough adventure, but I’m looking
forward to the challenge and I’m training hard for it.

equally important challenge for me this year is the goal of raising much needed
funds for Song Saa Foundation. I have had a close association with Song Saa
since 2010 and I am a great supporter of the wonderful work that Song Saa
Foundation continues to do for the local communities, natural environments and
ecosystems of the Koh Rong Archipelago.

a landscape architect, living and working in South-East Asia for almost 30
years, my first visit to Cambodia was back in 1994. At that time I was working
on the restoration of two historic hotel in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap and I’ve
been fortunate to have been involved on numerous environmental and ancient
monument conservation projects throughout Cambodia since then.

4 Deserts 4 Song Saa Foundation is a wonderful way for
me to combine my passion for adventure, my passion for the protection and
preservation of the worlds unique natural landscapes and my passion to help
provide a sustainable future for the environments and people of the Koh Rong Archipelago,

donations will greatly support the continued work of Song Saa Foundation and
will also truly help to motivate me to hopefully achieve my 4 Deserts Grand
Slam goal this year.

thanks for your support,


Allen Kerton
