About Pay for Brak's school fees!
Hi all. Last year, I was introduced to a wonderful little Cambodian boy named Brak whose story will both break and warm your heart. Please help me to raise just $500 to pay for his school fees. Here is his story (in the words of those who are helping him in Cambodia): Brak was born in the Steung Meanchey community near the former dump site in Phnom Penh. Brak’s family faced many challenges. Brak’s dad had an affair with another woman and he also liked drinking alcohol. He often committed domestic violence when he got drunk. One day, he sold the Tuk Tuk. Since then, he has been jobless and Brak’s mom has become the family’s sole breadwinner. She is a house cleaner, and works very hard from the early morning until late in the evening. However, her small income could not cover the family’s daily expenses and they struggled to survive. She couldn’t afford to send her children to school at all. Instead, Brak had to stay at home with his brothers and dad. They lived in a small rented room, similar to the pictures here -- in an impoverished area surrounded by garbage. During the rainy season, the area often flooded and it was unsanitary for Brak and his family. Luckily, Brak’s mom found out about an amazing organization called Cambodian Children's Fund from her neighbors whose children are CCF students. Then his mom took Brak and his brothers to ask permission from the CCF Community Center to study there. CCF accepted Brak and Pich into the Daycare Program. They now receive the support and safe environment necessary for their growth and development both mentally and physically as well as the love and care from CCF staff. This great news made his family very happy. His mom was very pleased to hear about her children’s acceptance into CCF and becoming part of the CCF family. Please help me in ensuring that Brak and his family can end the cycle of poverty by allowing Brak and his siblings to continue their education through CCF. It takes so very little to make such a big difference.
