Year 2014 had a terrific start, Borin got, as a newly graduated doctor, his dream job at a private hospital, fantastic, well-paid position in Cambodia well known and best hospital. He had to move to Siem Reap which is about 6-7 hours drive from Phnom Penh and he needed to leave the "small kids", which is now quite grown up, alone in Phnom Penh. They need to manage themselves, which has created lot of challenges.
Borin maintaining close contact with them and to the school by mobile phone. Chanty is also nice to help Borin with information about the three boys, but nevertheless it is a huge challenge. The boys do have a weak background and have difficulty taking care of themselves without an adults daily push.
We have tried to involve, more and more, Chhengs half brother who also lives in the temple and we got his help but it is a daily challenge. It is hard to find people in the temple with resources to help the kids, most of the people there have poor background in any aspects.
This year Kosal i doing 6th grade, Sophal and Chheng do 7th grade, Chanty started 1. grade in high school and Rotha do 2. year in high school (out of 3 years). They are all in the "critical" age so Borin and I keep our "fingers crossed" that they can manage this path in life.
With these great photos from the temple, we thnak you and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
The warmest greetings and best wishes for 2015.
Borin & Orly
