Reasonable Cause proudly sponsors the school education of Sokheng* and Chanthoeun*
Sokheng* and his little sister Chanthoeun* were abandoned by their mother in 2013. They now live in a safe and secure environment in residential care at Sunrise Cambodia. Here, they are able to attend school regularly as well as receiving essential health and medical support. They also undertake additional English and computer lessons from Sunrise Cambodia to supplement their education.
After school, Sokheng enjoys playing soccer with his mates. Chanteoun enjoys watching TV.
Sunrise Cambodia does not participate in adoption or foster care programs. This is because the Cambodian bureaucracy and justice system are rife with corruption. There is no national fingerprint database. Proper background checks cannot be conducted with any confidence. Sunrise Cambodia always tries to place children in the community with blood relatives, however this has not been possible with Sokheng and Chantoeun.
Sunrise Cambodia keeps these kids happy and healthy and ensures that they get a fair go in life.
* The names of these children have been changed to protect their privacy.
