and Our Story

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. - James 1:27
The Children's Development Centre in Vealsbov is now caring for 20 beautiful children. These delightful little ones have come from severely disadvantaged backgrounds, but are already reaping the benefits of a loving, secure environment, healthy food and daily education opportunities that they would otherwise not have had.
20 girls and boys from rural Cambodia now live at the Home and receive education, skills training, healthy diet and are lovingly cared for. These children now have opportunities for long term solutions to overcome poverty and sickness. The Centre has recently been extended and provides the children with separate accommodation and ablution areas for girls and boys to meet the Cambodian Government’s required standards for a children’s home. Thank you to all the wonderful people who contributed financially to realise this dream.
A teacher has been employed to teach English after school hours. Other lessons are in Khmer dance and English, with skills training in sewing and pattern making.
Supporters of Stitches of Hope make visits to give specific training or education at times. During such visits the children love to show their ability in graceful Khmer dance, to sing and recite.
New children come as would be expected. The stories of these children are assessed and often taken into care, stitching hope into their precarious lives.
The children are being trained in sustainability, and under the guidance of Punnreay they are establishing vegetable beds, a fish pond and a chicken pen. This has given them a desire to become responsible and empower them for the future.
Some of our little people who have not had the essentials in education are now attending a school which gives them the extra tuition to catch up to their age level at school.
