1 Lets see what the Country looks like Buddhist Temples

2 People give rice to the monk to earn merit. The boy carries the rice for the monk for the same reason

3 5% of Cambodians belong to a Muslim minority group. Muslim missionaries paid for the mosque.

4 The Countryside Mostly muscle power but some wealthier farmers now have rotavators and even tractors

5 A third of the population lives below the poverty line

6 Travelling Away from the main roads travel is often difficult, particularly in the rainy season

7 In the fields ox carts are the most common method of transport

8 Sometimes you just have to walk

9 50% of the population is under 18 years old

10 Fish is a staple part of the diet and a major source of protein



13 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

14 We also support local village churches

15 Here are the FAITH project workers. They help village churches to do community development as a means of reaching out to their neighbours

16 There are animal husbandry projects And craft ones too. Their produce is on sale here

17 We provided aid to those forcibly resettled And work with the hill tribes

18 What’s living in Cambodia like? Food can be bought in the markets although there are now some supermarkets in the capital

19 You have to get used to poverty and unrest

20 Animal’s are often not treated with respect, this is TWO pigs on their way to market

21 This Tokay gecko is about 30cm long and might be found climbing your bedroom wall!
