Mr. Ling Swee Chan was an amazing man with the heart to give to the poor in Cambodia. He joined hands with OHF founder Mr. Robert Kee to give, bless, rebuild and save the underprivileged. Back in the early days, they travelled regularly to Cambodia to organise food pack distributions, help with community rebuilding and facilitate the building of our children home, Hope Village Prey Veng. However, in a nasty twist of fate, Mr. Ling’s life changed forever after the car he was in was wrecked by a train.
Despite being paralysed from the neck down, Mr. Ling continued to fight for the poor in Cambodia. He emerged from his ordeal stronger and with an even bigger heart. This video is a summarised account of the story of Mr. Ling Swee Chan.
