A DAY IN THE DIVINE COMMUNITY

Part 1: The Morning

Nob Sameat has two children of her own but is a mother of seven. She, along with her own mother Samrith Samean, fosters five children in the Divine Community, one of CCF’s World Housing sites, next to the former landfill in Phnom Penh. In this photo story, she gives us a glimpse into a typical morning for her family; from an early rise through to getting the kids off to school.
