“Money can’t buy anything because when you’ll die you can’t bring it with you”
I was chatting with the neighbors near my house, leaving my sister with a cripple at the house. Suddenly, I saw a huge smoke up in the air, assuming that the community got burned. I rushed as fast as I can to save my sister’s life. That’s my first priority seeing her safe.
“I lost my mom since I was 7 years old because my mom gets cancer”.
“My house got burn and I didn’t grab anything, if can go in and get something,I would only get the rice”
“I don’t want anything besides home for my family”
“Working in an NGO has always been my dream job since I was in high school. This is because I grew up in a poor family and once I am educated, I always want to help people because I know how life in the poor family feels like. For the first three months that I worked for CCF, I felt like quitting. However, I did not. I met Scott Nyson, the founder of CCF and he is not Cambodian, but he wants to help Cambodian people. I questioned myself. How about me? I am Cambodian, why do I quit? So I decided to walk into the flame and work for CCF until now. On the 15th of May will be a big day for me. 1/ It is my birthday. 2/ My 5 years anniversary working for CCF. 3/ 15 years anniversary of CCF.”
Music is really important to me, even though I am sad or happy music will always be my friends.
I have been in Khmer Rouge before and I got a really bad punishment at that time they told me to build the dam from the early morning to evening. My family was gone through that time and I also adopted a child because I didn’t have family.
I am working at Mondulkiri as a construction worker. One day, one of my neighbors called me and I was very shocked knowing that my house is burned. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do anything because I was 273 kilometers far away!! I’m worried about my wife who lives with a cripple but luckily the kids near the house carry her and she’s safe now.
