Steung Meanchey, Phnom Penh - Home!

This is 12 year old Cheoung and this is his home.


This is the same house that my sponsored kid, Tira used to stay and there is no proper flooring and bed.


Cheoung parents rented the house for USD30 a month and their household income is not more than USD100.


I visited him and realized that Cheoung parents were back to their village in the province. The boy take care of himself and not sure when parents coming back.


There were nothing much in the house. A very small TV. One lamp, one malfunction clock and the blue bicycle that Mr. Wouter (his sponsor) bought for him.


The beds have no mattress and there was no fan in the house. It was very hot inside.


This is the typical house that all of our sponsored kids stay.
