Families living on the streets

Common sights in my country. Children at very young age with mother or father or both parents sleeping on the streets. Why are they here? Will the parent accept to help themselves if given help by NGOs?
I don’t go to talk to them myself. I think it is not my skill and expertise. My intervention will not result in a long term solution. I close my eyes and tell myself that NGOs will work with them and provide them then opportunity they need to get out of this situation. What I should do is to donate and support the NGOs that know how to help them off the streets for long term.


Who are they? and why are they here?

thOld European/western men in the senior years spending time in Battambang. Saw 3 them hanging out 3 nights in a row in a local restaurant. They might be tourists. They don’t seem like tourists. Are they spending their retirement time in Battambang? Yes it is the caze it is good. They can contribute to Cambodian local economy. Cambodia can look into retirement as a market to attract. Will they touch and harm our children? We don’t know. There are good and bad people. We must enforce our law on protecting children and sending a clear message that retiree are very welcome but not the ones who abuse children and young adults.

Protect and nurture our children. They are our future.


Gratitude and the showing of gratitude

Many people have made me a better person. Some rescued me from dire situations. Some helped me unconditionally. I am who and where I am today because of their empathy and actions. I have said “Thank You” to them but is that enough? Is “Thank You” enough? It is not. I don’t feel it is enough. I must reconnect with them. Shown them how much I appreciate them. Show them the person the helped has grown to be the man I am today. They must be proud. I am proud of them. I love them. Thank you for making me the “Dara” today. I promise we will be reconnected.

Thank you bong bong, aun aun, lok krou, neak krou.
