We hope all is well with you and yours. We are now back in Cambodia. We took a few days to catch up on some rest and have been connecting with our contacts here in Siem Reap and have the ball rolling for most of the projects that we will be working on this year.

The next day we returned to meet with You Vath to discuss the business end of running Samnang House. As always there are bikes to repair or replace as they are driven rain or shine, seven days a week and time takes it toll on them; so we will repair some and condemn others. There are issues with water at the house that will be looked at but in general all is going smoothly.
Then we discussed the eight new girls that had recently arrived. We asked with trepidation how they came to be here, as we know from past experience that their stories are the furthest thing from fairytale lives one could imagine. They had come from a variety of very extreme situations, facing poverty, abandonment, abuse from family members, or no access to education in rural areas.
