Since  2013, Phare Circus has been Siem Reap's top-rated entertainment. The artists performed nightly in a circus big top filled to capacity. This came to a screeching halt in March 2020. The COVID pandemic closed borders and tourism evaporated. Entertainment venues were ordered closed for health and safety.  The artists weren't able to perform since 17 March 2020. The circus had no income.

Phare Circus resumed weekend performances to put the artists back to work, boost morale, support the community and revive hope for brighter days. Domestic demand is not strong enough to support the costs, so this fundraising campaign was launched to make up the difference. This campaign was absolutely essential to keep the weekend performances going until international tourism returned.

Cambodia re-opened to visitors in November 2021 and direct international arriving flights in December. The tourism recovery is under way, but there is a long, difficult road ahead. "Invite a Family" is still important to keep the circus open until tourism is fully back to normal.

Your support is greatly appreciated.
