The Community in Kampong Cham

YDC Kampong ChamLocated 2 hours northeast of Phnom Penh, 1000 families reside across the 2 districts in this province. Most families farm rice and corn. Some grow tropical fruits such as mangos, jackfruit and sugarcane and sell them at local markets. Breeding small farm animals such as chickens and ducks are also common.

Minimal infrastructure means job opportunities are few. As a result, many youths seek employment in Phnom Penh after graduating from high school. Girls often enter early into marriage or find jobs working in beauty salons or selling in the local markets with their family.

Giving Back

Mercy ministry is also on the hearts of Umong, Nary and their volunteers. They often visit the local hospital to pray for patients and provide the love and encouragement they need as well as Bible teaching and prayer.
