Like many living in the crowded slums of Phnom Penh, Touch Sarith and her husband struggled just to make it day to day. They shared a single small room with another family and lived on just $2 a day scavenging at the nearby dumpsite.
There was never enough food, and it became next to impossible to send their children to school. That all changed when they met the qualifications to receive a World Housing home.
With a safe, secure roof over their heads, The Sarith family is now thriving. The children go to school, they have access to healthcare and nutrition programs, and they are models in their community.
