CHEA RATANA

Age 16

I lived at Choup Commune, Tbong Khmom District, Kampong Cham Province. I came to the orphanage because my family was very poor and had no money to pay for my schooling. My mother was also sick. After my Grandma brought me to the centre, it was like having a new life. The orphanage has provided me with the opportunity to study – they also provide me with clothes and a small amount of pocket money. In the future I was to be an english teacher.
