And Twelve Makes A Dozen

I am pleased to say that Helping Hand has just received conformation of it’s twelfth sponsor therefore enabling one more child from the slums of Phnom Penh to attend Beltei School and move on in life and out of the slums. Thank you all so much for your sponsorship,donations,support and prayers and may we still believe that this only the beginning…

This is a typical landscape for a slum in Phnom Penh

The lady in the above pictures is Mrs Pav Neourn (Tree Lady). She will walk along the riverbanks behind the Pagoda that is close to her home and climb the trees to get the “edible plant” which she will try and sell, making maybe $1 a day. She is 60 years old and has a large family which she supports as they choose not to support her. There is no question of retirement…….Fortunately Helping Hand has a sponsor who is willing to donate an amount each month to provide rice for her.

Above is Laila who with Chelsea Bell did a sponsored mini triathlon to raise money to help sponsor a child through Helping Hand. This month she visited her sponsored child,Theara, who lives in one of the slums in the south of Phnom Penh. She is the first sponsor to visit their sponsored child and hopefully she will not be the last. Of her visit Laila said”Theara was very excited to meet me and kept hugging me”.Thank you also to Theara’s other sponsor who I know prays regularly for him.

Due to a generous donation Chanthy was able to buy a new phone after her old one broke. It is vital to her work for taking and sending photo’s and videos of those we are trying to help.Thank you Bethany Ladies Group.
