FIRE BURNS 9 HOMES AND JAVA’S OFFICE

Java Cafe was my ‘office’ during my time in Phnom Penh. Please stay tuned for ways to help this valuable arts organization in Phnom Penh:

FIRE BURNS 9 HOMES AND JAVA’S OFFICE

We are very sad to share the news that a fire last week burned down 9 homes behind Java Cafe. Fortunately no one was hurt.

Included in the damage was our office, our entire cafe stock, all our equipment for art events and over 150 artworks were completely destroyed.  This is devastating for the artists and for us.

The majority of the work lost were by Chath PierSath as well as Anida Yoeu Ali, David Harding, Eiko Naganawa, Genevieve Marot, Keeda Oikawa, Neak Sophal, Nicolas C Grey, Oeur Sokuntevy and William Graef.

In the coming days we will announce a fundraising campaign to support the artists who lost their artwork and to replace the equipment that was burned.  We appreciate any support that can be provided, thank you!
