A video shines light on rich and poor

You do not always have to speak to express an idea – sometimes, a video or a photo can speak for you. Presently, there is a video on Facebook that reflects the lifestyle differences between the rich and the poor. There are many likes, comments and shares on this video.

The comments mostly provide positive feedback, with few people criticising the video.

A Bi TuMu commented: “really good maker and meaning full . . . i love it”

Thun Visa posted: “Very amazing video! Yeah!!! Culture of sharing - that’s what human should do.”

While the video’s poster wanted to reflect on the different lives of the rich and the poor, some people were confused by the emphasis on clean water.

GiGi Pisaa posted: “Maybe spot for raising fund to help Cambodian children or for clean water I can’t read Korean lol”

MuyHong Chan wrote: “I think they focus more on sanitation and clean water access between the two not the rich or the poor.”

Whether rich or poor, Uyfc Koh Kong Province posted that each person only has one life. Therefore, everyone should support all of humankind.
