Happy Village

In Western countries we know that homes by the river can fetch a lot of money… well that idea is now catching on in Cambodia too, and as a result, in late 2007, 18 families in a Phnom Penh riverside slum community called Happy Village were forced out of their little bamboo and tin homes due to the construction of big, expensive houses nearby.

Happy Village is a community where Fellowship of Hope Church has invested a lot of time and prayer, looking after families who know God’s love and provision despite their difficult life circumstances.

Due to God’s miraculous provision through the kindness of families, churches and individuals in Australia the 18 families who were pushed out of their slum homes are now living in a safe village at Koh Krobey in Kandal Province (about 25 minutes out of Phnom Penh).

From here… where some homes got flooded in the wet season!

To a brand new home here… in a safe and peaceful setting!

As part of this village we run community development projects, teaching families about basic life skills such as hygiene, first aid, budgeting, English and Khmer language classes.

The work that we do to support and educate the families in this village, and other slum communities all comes at a cost. Would you consider supporting us with a one off or regular donation to assist these families in developing their skills, so that one day they will be able to support themselves? The dream of many people in this village is that they will have the skills to not only be able to support their own family, but also to go out and provide help for others who are living in the poverty they once knew.
