Cambodian Children Eating

A Father to the Fatherless

Massive genocide decimated much of Cambodia´s adult population in the 1970s and 1980s, leaving behind a generation of abandoned children. Some 60 percent of the population is 24 years old or younger. The new generation of adults, some of whom had no one from which to learn parenting skills, struggle to raise their children. Limited job opportunities add to the challenges. Kampuchea for Christ operates a children´s home for more than 300 girls and boys in the village of Kambour. Here they are raised in a loving Christian environment and receive shelter, food, education, and medical care. The ministry would like to build a dormitory to better meet the needs of the children.
