Letter: Tell me your troubles

Letter: Tell me your troubles

I contemplated not writing this letter as I didn’t want to appear as “just another Westerner wanting to save the world.â€

I’m not after self admiration or

self fulfillment; I honestly just want to be of assistance anyway possible to

the people of Cambodia.

I am particularly passionate about assisting in abolishing human trafficking

and lowering the number of HIV/AIDS infected individuals.

These are both goals that won’t

be achieved today or tomorrow, but it can be done. As my mother always said

“You have to be persistent!”

The reason I wrote this here is

that I wanted to hear from people who live and breathe the Cambodian life.

Unfortunately my only means of news about issues of concern are those the media

chooses to show and so I ask for you to please write to me at:
[email protected] and tell me of problems you and your family face

(education, housing, health care, and so forth).

Kind Regards,

Tamara,
Sydney
