Better life for those who lost it all

Imagine; one day the government shuts down all the schools, hospitals, libraries and companies. Suddenly, your families are forced to quit their jobs and forced to work in the farm for common good. Police force your families to leave their homes, burn all your belongings and inheritance, especially all of the forms of art. Any form of religion is prohibited. Temples and churches are burned down to ashes. This can sound like a sad beginning for a war movie, but sadly this was the true story for Cambodians back in 1970’s due to Khmer Rouge, communist dictatorship. Education was gone, hospitals were gone, all forms of art and culture were prohibited. What kind of life is that? Does anyone deserves that kind of treatment? How can you raise your nation back to its feet from the ashes? 10 years ago my path led to Cambodia to teach dance and English to kids living in the streets. I never before had seen such poverty in my life and we were staying in one of the Cambodian cities. Can you imagine the conditions for life in rural villages? Could you live in a village where the closest source of water existed in 5km distance? This campaign aims to raise money for those Cambodians living in a rural villages. Felm is Finnish Evangelist Lutherian Mission organization that operates closely with local partners within their development cooperation operations. Their project called “Promoting life at Rural Villages” is helping people living in rural villages. the project aims at improved socio-economic status of poorest and most vulnerable families in Choam Ksant district, Preah Vihear province, by capacitating especially the women to improve the food security, economic status, sanitation and health situation of their families. You can read more about their projects from Felm’s webpage “Mercy to the needy is a loan to GOD, and GOD pays back those loans in full.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:17‬ ‭MSG‬‬
