Story of Change (May-2020)


Greetings! My name is Mrs. Sot, and I am 71 years old. I rent a small place in a slum village in Chak Angre Leou, just south of Phnom Penh proper. I live with one daughter, one son and 2 grandchildren. My present job is to take care of my grandchildren and cook food for my both children. My daughter is a cleaner at Diamond Island (Koh Pich), but was laid off for a few months due to COVID 19, and she just now got her job back this month. My son is a security guard and I am the one who takes care of his children, as he and his wife were divorced.

Since the arrival of Covid 19 to Cambodia and in the world, we have been rather adversely affected, especially concerning our income and finances. Expenses are many, and we have to divide our little bit of income that we pool together to pay for water, electricity, rent and daily food, so, yes, it had a big affect on my family.

So, when I received this gift, I was most excited. This gift has really helped my family in the short term, and I am so grateful and excited, especially for the rice that can feed my family for a whole month. Usually, every few days I buy a few kilos of rice, so it really helped free me up for a month and use our finances on other pressing expenses. I would like to thank the generous donors who reached out to my family and me. I am really excited and grateful to you through this organization.
