“My parents were born in Kampong Speu province. After my mother died, we moved to Phnom Penh in 2007, and my father remarried not long after. I wasn’t very good at football when I was younger, but I really enjoyed playing. I heard about the CCF football program from one of CCF’s staff, and it sounded like a great opportunity, so I signed up. Life is much better now that I have football to look forward to!

“I am so happy to have been selected to represent Cambodia in the Homeless World Cup. I can’t wait to travel to Oslo and meet with other football players from around the world.”
