Lets see what the Country looks like Buddhist Temples
People give rice to the monk to earn merit. The boy carries the rice for the monk for the same reason
5% of Cambodians belong to a Muslim minority group. Muslim missionaries paid for the mosque.
The Countryside Mostly muscle power but some wealthier farmers now have rotavators and even tractors
A third of the population lives below the poverty line
Travelling Away from the main roads travel is often difficult, particularly in the rainy season
In the fields ox carts are the most common method of transport
Sometimes you just have to walk
50% of the population is under 18 years old
Fish is a staple part of the diet and a major source of protein
CA helped set up new ways of farming fish This is a fish refuge in a rice paddy. The fish will eat pests in the flooded paddy and then retreat here as the paddy is drained when the rice is harvested
We also support local village churches
Here are the FAITH project workers. They help village churches to do community development as a means of reaching out to their neighbours
There are animal husbandry projects And craft ones too. Their produce is on sale here
We provided aid to those forcibly resettled And work with the hill tribes
What’s living in Cambodia like? Food can be bought in the markets although there are now some supermarkets in the capital
You have to get used to poverty and unrest
Animal’s are often not treated with respect, this is TWO pigs on their way to market
This Tokay gecko is about 30cm long and might be found climbing your bedroom wall!
There are other little creatures to get used to too!
Strange fruits to eat, this is a papaya.
I hope this gives you a feel for Cambodia. A place of contrasts:
Friends we understand
And people we cannot understand
Please help Cambodia Action to bring God’s love to the beautiful but tragic country of Cambodia This Slide show will start again in a few seconds
