Kian Klieng families now settled in Prey Sor

As you will have seen on our Facebook page over the past month or so, the buildings at Prey Sor are now complete, and the poorest families from the Kian Kleng slum have relocated to their new homes!

There was a big celebration to officially open the new homes, some of the fundraising supporters were able to attend, as well as local government officials. There were also 3 local television stations who filmed the event and interviewed Sara with some of the Serve Cambodia staff members for their evening news programs. (Check out our Facebook page to watch footage of one of those news reports!) This was a great witness to the surrounding communities of the love of God and His people for their communities.

The local government officials visited as guests of honor, and said that they are very impressed with Serve Cambodia’s work in the area and very supportive and appreciative of the work that is being done for the poor and to educate the next generation.

Although the building work has been completed, the project will continue for years into the future, educating, guiding and caring for the people who have moved here. They will be provided with opportunities to learn life skills, schooling, nutrition and medical support as well as being able to live in the new homes. We are so grateful to God that most of the adults/parents that have moved into these homes have already found employment in the new factotries being opened in the Prey Sor area. This is the perfect start to their new lives!

There is a lot to celebrate and we want to celebrate with you and say thank you to all of the people in Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania and Western Australia who have worked so hard to raise funds and give donations for this project. To finish, we will leave you with the words of one young mother who has been blessed to move to the new housing:

“I would like to narrate my life before I moved to live in Prey Sor here. I used to live in the condition with the difficulties such as: we have to live in small space of house (looked like chicken cage) with several members in one family as well as my house is so old and nearly to collapse and when the rainy season, my house is drown by the heavy rain and water almost reached to the roof of the house. Both of us (spouse) never have the permanent and proper job and we make the living for survive and every day we have to pick the dung of cattle’s, by drying it and collect to it to make the fertilizer and we used to do fishing to feed our family. Moreover, we have no specific goal for our life and we don’t know where and whom should we could be relying on. And my husband used to addict the narcotic and he used to rob someone’s property and more and more…. My life looked like the waste in the Kian Klieng slum.”

“When I knew the three pastors (Vuth, Sara, Vuthy) my life have been changed gradually by knowing God, and every night we often prayed to the Lord, to ask for having the proper life (house, finance and career) and want to know God more and more. And God have made the great thing with us by His offer what we have requested. And when we heard that we are going to have a new house, we was so appreciated.”

“Right now, my family lives in the happiness. And we want to proclaim that only God who is awesome and He not even give us the new house, but also give us the new life. And my husband has abandoned the addicted drug and stop robbing by turning helping its family and making the living. And we have the real and specific goal such having the proper job as well. And all my kid are able to go to school both government school and HOH.”
