Meet The Pov Family

Every Home Has A Story.

We recently sat down with the Pov family and asked them about their lives before moving into a World Housing community. Read their inspiring story and see how far they’ve come…

When I was five years old, I moved to live in Phnom Penh. I’ve worked many different jobs in my life, including making cigarettes in a factory and selling vegetables. I have lived alone all of my life until I adopted my daughter. The happiest moment in my life was when we received this World Housing home.



Before, we lived in a wooden rental room for $15 USD. I felt so happy when we moved away from there and into the new World Housing home. There is nothing to compare with this feeling. Life is easier now than before. I like everything in this home including the cooking and sleeping materials. The neighbours here are so kind and always help us. We never argue with the neighbours.


If there was no World Housing, life would be so difficult. With the support that we get, we can now pay for food.
