What your money could do

Give now to help older people like Dum Ream

At 72, the widowed Dum Ream cares for three grandchildren on her own in Cambodia. She earns an income selling homemade rice noodles, but she no longer has the energy to go door-to-door and struggles to bring in enough cash.

What little money she earns goes towards looking after the children, clothing them and sending them to school.

“I prefer to deprive myself so that my grandchildren can succeed. I will continue fighting for them till the day I die,” she says.

A donation from you would be a lifeline to Dum Ream - helping her buy food to eat and pay the school fees for her grandchildren.
