“I am living a peaceful life thanks to Human and Hope Association.”
This year I am donating my birthday to a cause close to my heart; Human and Hope Association Inc. With your support, we will raise funds to provide community development programs to Cambodians living in poverty. People like Sophy.
Sophy grew up in a war-torn country. With the Khmer Rouge taking control of Cambodia, she and her family had very little food to eat, worked all day at risk of punishment, and didn’t have access to education or medical support. When her father was killed, her family struggled to survive.
When she was 20, Sophy got married and went on to have four children. Sophy was often sick and her hospital bills pushed her family further and further into debt. Sophy began working at Human and Hope Association Cambodia as their Sustainability Assistant. She didn’t let her illiteracy hold her back, and through HHA’s microfinance program, Sophy started a chicken farm and built a well for her family to access water. Most importantly, her husband has stopped drinking and reduced his violence against the family after taking part in HHA’s domestic violence workshops. Thanks to HHA’s workshops, Sophy built a safe and stable brick home for her family in 2018, replacing the bamboo shack they had lived in for so long.
Sophy has a bright future because of Human and Hope Association, and I want to make sure other Cambodians like Sophy are afforded the same opportunity. Because of your generosity, we will be able to continue to make grassroots change in Cambodia.
Thank you for your support.
