Name: Bap*
Age: 6 years old
Child ID: C278

“It takes a village” is the perfect expression to use for Bap and her younger sister. Instead of being raised by their parents, the 2 girls were raised by kind neighbours and villagers in the village. Bap’s father appears only when he needs money and then disappears shortly after he’s managed to borrow money, and during his disappearance remains uncontactable. Bap’s mother, who is a farmer, constantly struggles to put food on the table and never has time to look after Bap and her younger sister. Having just given birth 9 months ago, Bap’s mother focuses all her energy on her newborn baby. The 2 girls live in their grandfather’s house, but her grandfather is partially blind and thus unable to provide full care to the girls.

The villagers in the village have reached out to Hope Village as they have heard the success stories of past children who have graduated from Hope Village. They have witnessed these Hope Village alumni go on to lead successful lives after graduating. Filled with concern that the girls will be eventually abandoned by their struggling mother, they have requested for the 2 girls to be enrolled in Hope Village in hopes that they will get 3 regular meals a day, proper care and a chance at going to school.

Name: Bo*
Age: 8 years old
Child ID: C280

Having only moved to the Svay Antor a year ago to stay with their elderly grandmother, Bo, his mother and his younger brother have met with nothing but kindness. Bo’s sickly mother owns a small street stall that sells dried food, snacks and sweets, which bring barely enough income to buy food for the 4 of them. To add on to their already unfortunate circumstances, the money earned is not enough for Bo’s mother to replenish her stocks and she is now in danger of running out of things to sell.

Having had the support from the village chief and villages, Bo and his younger brother were saved from a seemingly dangerous situation where a villager had approached Bo’s mother and forced her to sign some papers that would hand her 2 boys over to an orphanage of unknown origin. The village chief and villagers intercepted the situation and managed to stop the boys from being taken away.

The village chief then reached out to the commune chief and asked for our staff at Hope Village to be contacted. When we arrived, the villagers showed their full support in having Bo and his younger brother enrolled in Hope Village as they knew it would give them 3 regular meals daily, a comfortable environment to grow up in, as well as a chance to go to school.

Name: Bros*
Age: 7 years old

Bros and his siblings learnt to survive on their own from a very young age. Their father abandoned the family and never contacted them again. His departure caused Bros’s mother to sink into alcoholism, and she was drunk every day. Then one day, she decided to go to Phnom Penh to find a job, and left Bros and his siblings to fend for themselves alone in the village.

The siblings stayed in their small 3m x 4m house made of palm leaves and wood, learning to manage daily tasks such as finding food and walking themselves to school. They were however unable to stay in school as they could not afford to buy any school supplies or books, and also often felt tired and weak from the lack of food.

Our local Hope Village staff were notified of the siblings’ situations by the village chief, and we immediately headed down to the village to offer our assistance to the siblings.

Ever since giving birth to her first child, Sim’s mother health was drastically affected, and she was diagnosed with Postpartum Femoral Neuropathy, a condition where during childbirth a woman’s femoral nerve is pressed and thus causing weakness in her hips and legs, resulting in difficulty with rising from a chair or climbing stairs, and can make the knees buckle.

Moving back into their grandparents’ house, Sim’s mother earns an irregular income by helping the villagers in the village with their housework.

Unfortunately, his father passed away two months ago, and since then life has been difficult. Bott and his 4 other siblings live with their grandmother, who also helps to look after his mentally disabled mother. His mother’s mental disability caused her to reject her children and rendered her unable to work. Bott’s grandmother had no choice but to retire early from her job as a village assistant to look after the family.

Having no form of income, Bott’s grandmother can only seek help from neighbours and relatives. Neighbours share rice and clothing with them and some relatives help to contribute money for milk to feed Bott’s 9 month old sibling.
