Sophal - new home in Siem Reap

I decided that it is time for Sophal to leave the temple in Phnom Penh and for the first time in his life to have a home. I rented a room for 45 USD for Sophal and his older brother, Sokly.

His brother grew up in a NGO, finished high school and just started in university, he is working as hotel receptionist.
Sokly, promised to support Sophal and therefore I decided that it is best for Sophal to live with his brother instead of staying as homeless in the temple.

Sophal moved now to Siem Reap, the city of Angkor Wat, 7 hours drive from Phnom Penh. Borin, who is also living in Siem Reap found a room for the two brothers just near by his apartment.

Chanty - Last year in high school

Chanty went shopping, new school uniform, for the new and last year in high school. She is doing quite well at school, still living in the temple which is extremely rare in Cambodia, a temple is a "girl free zone", but Chanty have been there since she was a little girl and they accept her destiny because of her sickness.
