Life living in Rubbish Dump village

The Rubbish Dump village has 45 families who live around a rubbish dump, most of their jobs are scavenge at rubbish dump for plastic, copper and other recyclable materials that they can exchange for money and they can earn $4 per day.

So do you think that $4 per day is enough for make their living for 5 member in their family? Of course that it is not enough for them, to making their living even in poor conditions at least you need to have more than $7 per day. That’s why some of them tries to push their children must scavenge for recyclable materials every day and most kids to work alongside them to make enough income and provide the family’s needs… (rice, food, clean water & Renting room every month) while most of the kids don’t attend school.

If some day they can’t make enough money 3 time a day to buy food, they need to find food to eat from dump that some restaurant leave over at rubbish dump.

During Phcum Benh Day (Khmer Holiday) that is very difficult time for them to earn money to buy rice and food to feed their family, because buyers at the rubbish dump not available to buy from them for this time and they are need to wait till the Khmer Holiday is finished. Another problem they face with raining season, the area where they scavenge rubbish it very flooding in the raining season, so they need to walk in the bad water to scavenge the rubbish for exchange money to get food, that is how they earn money to make their living!

And we would like to thanks God for his blessed by the recent team from Mounty Church who visited Fellowship of Hope Church and Serve Cambodia and the Rubbish Dump village, and we have opportunity to sharing the word of God to them and we also knew that they face with hunger problem and the team want to bless them with a gift of rice, and we not forget to thanks to Louise Ellings and her team that provide them with well for all the villager to get clean water to drinking.
