Last summer Sophal & I visited Cambodia with our 2 kids. The trip to Cambodia has awakened a deep passion to help the 20,000 street children in Phnom Penh living on the streets. This life style perpetuates the poverty cycle by depriving these children an opportunity for growth. We wanted to do something NOW! So we started selling our Art (Painting & Photography) to raise money and help Cambodian kids get off the streets.
TOGETHER WE CAN HELP CAMBODIAN KIDS GET OFF THE STREETS!
With the partnership of the Big Brother, Big Sister – “Bong Paoun Project,“ local volunteers will help street kids break the cycle of poverty allowing them to get an education so their children will not have to work on the streets of Cambodia.
Sophal’s story began when she was abandoned on the streets of Phnom Penh at about 3 months of age. A Swiss Red Cross nurse found her and nursed her back to health. This nurse was a friend of Sophal’s current adoptive parents.
Sophal & I have been married since 1994 and have a 10-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son.
