If you follow me on facebook, you know that we collected a ton of stuff to bring to an amazing organization in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Safe Haven is doing awesome work to help disabled kids in villages in Cambodia. Please visit their website or facebook page to learn more about all they are doing.
We were lucky enough to meet one of the families benefiting from Safe Haven. Little Kea was born with club feet and needed surgery in order to be able to walk and go to school. If the kids can’t walk or ride a bike to school there is no way for them to get there. She is now able to walk, ride a bike and go to school. Her family is very poor and both parents are away a lot working at the rice fields. Kea knows how to fish and cook rice all by herself but just like any little girl, she also likes to play in the water and be a kid! The family was very welcoming and the neighbors even stopped by to check us out. I’m so thankful I got to see a taste of their lives and give them a family photo!
Heather, the founder of Safe Haven, asked us to take some family photos for their newsletter along with some headshots of their staff. We were very excited to be able to help, even if it was in a small way.
There was a kitten and I was meowing at it to get its attention. They all thought it was funny, repeating meow and then laughing. I meowed at this little one and he thought it was funny and was laughing at me.
