Hi there! I’m a 7-year-old boy living in the lush, green Trapeang Prasat region of Cambodia. I have two sisters and two brothers and we all help each other. I am good in health and at school, I love learning about new things, especially national languages. When I get home, I assist my family by washing dishes. I also love playing ball games with my friends!

We live in a simple and small community, surrounded by an amazing wildlife reserve. Although it is very green, life can be hard here. Most people, including my family, are farmers who don't have their own land. Clean water and even a proper latrine are luxuries we don’t have. But, things are getting better! With sponsorship and aid from FH, we've formed farmers cooperatives and Savings and Loans Groups, and our caregivers are learning new ways to look after us. I am lucky to go school and get health check-ups regularly. This gives me hope for a brighter future. Please keep me and my family in your prayers. Thanks for joining us on our journey towards a better life!
