Dec 21 - 23, 2012 - Tonle Sap, Cambodia

Updated: Jan 28

December 21- 23, 2012


A journey to bring love to the lives of the unfortunate Vietnamese immigrants in Tonle Sap, Cambodia lack the basic necessities of life. There are approximately 2,000 Vietnamese currently living here, afloat amidst this endless lake day and night, without any escape. It is heartbreaking to see mothers and their children just around the age of 5 or 6 with filthy rags on swimming after tour boats to plead for money from tourists passing by. They live day by day with no thoughts of a future ahead of them. Families have been stranded here for 3 generations…


Along with around 27 members from “Vo Thuong”, I traveled here from December 21-23, 2012. Our long and tedious journey began at 4am and went on until 11pm, transporting hundreds of lbs. of gifts, and traveling over hundreds of miles (6 hours by bus followed by 4 by boat). Although our visit did not leave a long lasting impact, we hope to have made a slight different in these people’s lives. Perhaps we were able to bring a smile to their faces and weeks without starvation/hunger. Each family/child received candy, cookies, rice, oil, milk, used clothing, etc. We were able to see the miserable lives they lead with our own eyes…


This journey undoubtedly left an impression in our hearts forever.
