Hello from M’Lop Tapang!
I wanted to thank you again for your past donations and let you know that these gifts you made are making a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children and youth here in Cambodia.
Many times, the best way to help children in need to have a better future is to help their families. By helping mothers and fathers in their roles as parents, the children benefit.
Sopheap* is just one of hundreds of parents we have been able to provide assistance to in 2015 thanks to your generousity. He and his wife live in a small village and have 7 children - 4 girls and 3 boys. Their oldest child is 25 years old now; the youngest is just under one year old. Sopheap works as a day laborer when he can. Sometimes he earns $50 a month, but most months less than that and struggles to support his family.
2 weeks agoSopheap received two small pigs from our Outreach Team. He will raise the pigs and in a little less than a year they should grow and produce litters of their own, earning Sopheap a healthy profit when he sells the new piglets – a small pig will sell for about $60 each. He then starts again to produce more pigs. With this new income source, Sopeap and his wife will be better able to provide for the needs of the children.
As part of the payback plan, Sopheap gives two baby pigs from the first litter back to M’Lop Tapang, who then gives them to another poor family to start their own small income generating business.
From all of us here at M’Lop Tapang, thank you again for your support. Together we continue to help thousands of Cambodian children here live healthier, happier lives.
