Fostering a better future

“There are eight people in our family including my mother and six kids. Two of the kids are my own, and my mother and I foster four extra. We live in two World Housing homes beside each other because there are so many of us.

“Before we came to CCF things were very hard. We didn’t have enough food for our children, and my oldest daughter Srey Neang could not go to school regularly. We used to live in a cheap rented room, and my mother was often sick. Our neighbour recommended that we go to CCF to ask for help. While she received medical treatment, we found out that children could study with CCF, so we applied to get Srey Neang into school. Now her education is better than we could have dreamed.

“I have a health condition and am unable to work, so my mother and I decided to use our free time to give back to CCF and foster children who need a home. We love our four foster kids as though they were our own, and we all spend time together as a family, playing and cooking – we especially like making banh chhev (Khmer crepes)!”
